When Stephen J. Gurgovits joined First National Bank as a teller in 1961, he had no idea that 50 years later he would be serving as Chief Executive Officer of F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE : FNB), parent company of what has become the fourth largest Pennsylvania-based bank. F.N.B. Corporation has achieved significant growth since Gurgovits assumed the role of CEO in 2004, doubling its asset size from $4 billion to more than $9.9 billion currently. The company employs nearly 2,800 workers throughout Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and Florida.

In recognition of Gurgovits’s 50 years of service, F.N.B. Corporation recently dedicated the Stephen J. Gurgovits Human Resources & Learning Center in his honor. William B. Campbell, current Chairman of F.N.B. Corporation and Director since 1975, explains why this is a fitting tribute to Gurgovits’s years of service. “One attribute that has defined Steve’s career is his passion for education and employee development. He has been a consistent advocate for F.N.B. employees, and the dedication of the Stephen J. Gurgovits Human Resources & Learning Center is a reflection of that commitment.”

Gurgovits is known as a leader in the banking industry and the community at large. Recognized across Pennsylvania for his banking expertise, he previously served as Chairman of the Pennsylvania Bankers Association (PBA), and he continues his contributions today as a member. He also served as a member of the American Bankers Association Board of Directors and a member of the American Bankers Council. He authored a book, Financing Small Business, which was published in the late 1980’s and used as a component of the American Institute of Banking curriculum. In addition, he has consistently provided leadership within the community, serving as a board member for numerous educational, developmental and health care institutions including Penn State University Shenango in Sharon and Penn State University Behrend in Erie, Penn-Northwest Development, Sharon Regional Health System and the Strimbu Memorial Fund. He served as Chairman for the Buhl Farm Capital Campaign and is currently a Buhl Trustee.

Gurgovits was a student at Youngstown State University when he assumed his first role in the financial industry. After earning a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics, he continued his banking education, graduating from the University of Wisconsin’s Graduate School of Banking. Throughout the next two decades, he successfully completed a number of key retail and commercial banking management assignments.

During the next 30 years of his career, Gurgovits filled a multitude of executive roles including President, CEO and Chairman of the Board of First National Bank of Pennsylvania, as well as President, Chairman and CEO of F.N.B. Corporation. Currently, he serves as Chairman of First National Bank of Pennsylvania and Director and CEO of F.N.B. Corporation, which is headquartered in Hermitage, PA.

During his years of executive leadership, Gurgovits has spearheaded a multitude of initiatives to ensure that employees are well-informed and that they recognize the importance of their individual roles. The dedication of the Stephen J. Gurgovits Human Resources & Learning Center is a suitable reminder of Gurgovits’s commitment to employee development, as well as to his 50 years of distinguished service. The newly dedicated building is located at 3015 Glimcher Boulevard in Hermitage, PA.
