Williams to Retire Next Month as FNB President

PITTSBURGH – John C. Williams Jr., president of First National Bank of Pennsylvania, will retire in September after 45 years in the banking industry, the bank announced this morning.

Williams joined First National Bank, the largest subsidiary of F.N.B. Corp., in 2008 to lead the bank’s Pittsburgh Region and was named president in 2011t.

The company’s announcement of his retirement credits  Williams as being instrumental in building teams and capabilities throughout the bank, and states his influence is “apparent in the successful growth of F.N.B. Wealth Management and First National Insurance Agency under his direction and in F.N.B.’s recognition as a top workplace in Pittsburgh and Cleveland.”

Williams also contributed to the successful completion of six mergers, the company noted.

“John has been integral in First National Bank’s dramatic growth, and his proven ability to drive goals across regions and business units has shaped our business model and collaborative culture,” said Vincent J. Delie, Jr., CEO and president of F.N.B. Corporation and CEO of First National Bank. “The best testament to John’s legacy at FNB is the strong and capable management team we have developed to step into new leadership opportunities.”

F.N.B. will promote Barry Robinson, executive vice president and head of consumer banking, and Robert Moorehead, president of the bank’s Pittsburgh Region, to the newly created roles of chief consumer banking officer and chief wholesale banking officer, respectively. Both will report to Delie, who will once again assume the role of bank president.
