DALLAS-FT. WORTH, Nov. 29, 2016 – PNC Bank, N. A. has named the leadership team for its Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex expansion efforts. Randy Wilhoit will serve as the new regional president, Brendan McGuire as head of Corporate Banking and Amber Scanlan as director of Client and Community Relations, effective Jan. 2, 2017.
Earlier this year, PNC announced plans to expand its efforts in the area by introducing its local leadership model and hiring additional employees to serve large and middle market companies in the state. PNC currently has more than 200 corporate and institutional banking employees in Texas who serve a diverse set of clients across multiple industry sectors, including real estate, healthcare, and energy.
“This is an attractive market for PNC with a strong base of corporate clients and a thriving community,” said Lou Cestello, head of PNC Regional Markets. “Expanding our efforts in the DFW Metroplex is a natural extension of our presence in the Southeast as we continue to bring PNC’s expertise and solutions further west.”
“We look forward to engaging in the market in new and more meaningful ways,” said Wilhoit. "We are a Main Street bank focused on building relationships that help us become an integral part of the community."
An 18-year veteran of PNC, Randy Wilhoit currently serves as a senior executive in the Business Credit group where he leads new business development and transaction structuring initiatives for corporate and commercial banking clients in the region. He is a Baylor University graduate and Dallas-area resident with deep ties to the community. Wilhoit is a member of the Dallas chapter for the Association for Corporate Growth, the Turnaround Management Association, the Commercial Finance Association and the World Affairs Council of Dallas.
As head of Corporate Banking, Brendan McGuire will lead PNC’s efforts to provide solutions to Dallas-area large and middle market companies. Currently, McGuire serves as a senior relationship manager in the Atlanta market where he focuses on technology, communications and fintech companies in the middle market and corporate finance segments. He joined PNC through its merger with RBC Bank (USA), where he led the Atlanta office for RBC’s Knowledge Based Industries Group, working exclusively with technology, telecommunications and digital media companies.
Brendan will be joined by Christian Brown, senior relationship manager for Large Corporate, and Brian Mack, associate relationship manager, as they continue to build out the team serving large and middle market clients in the region.
As director of Client and Community Relations, Amber Scanlan will work with Wilhoit and the team to expand PNC’s local charitable and sponsorship initiatives with a broad range of community organizations. Scanlan will transfer to Dallas from Alabama where she currently serves in that same role. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and a Master of Business Administration from Florida Gulf Coast University.
