PHILADELPHIA, July 5, 2016 – PNC Bank today announced the appointment of Joseph G. Meterchick as the new regional president for Philadelphia, Delaware and Southern New Jersey, effective July 8. Meterchick assumes the role from Paula Fryland who is retiring from PNC after a nearly 30-year career at the bank and relocating to the western U.S.
Meterchick is a Philadelphia native and PNC veteran who is returning to the region from PNC’s Florida West market. Prior to relocating to the Florida West market in 2011, Meterchick’s career at PNC included nearly 30 years in Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey. During that time, he led the corporate banking team in addition to serving as managing director of PNC Capital Markets and group manager in PNC Business Credit.
“Paula has been a terrific leader for PNC and has achieved success at every stage in her career. Her retirement offers the opportunity to provide a homecoming for Joe,” said Lou Cestello, executive vice president who oversees the regional presidents. “Joe has maintained strong ties to the Philadelphia, Delaware and Southern New Jersey markets and the clients he’s worked with over the years. His appointment ensures we continue to deliver established leadership capabilities, local expertise and a commitment to the community, as we always have.”
“I look forward to returning to the region and helping to build on the track record of success in one of PNC’s most respected markets,” said Meterchick. “It’s exciting to be working alongside colleagues I’ve known for years and to join with them in contributing to the growth and continued resurgence of my hometown.”
