With his extensive experience and proven commitment to employee development, Williams has been instrumental in building out teams and capabilities throughout the Bank. His influence is also apparent in the successful growth of F.N.B.

As President, Williams has also contributed to the successful completion and integration of six mergers.

“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., Chief Executive Officer and President of F.N.B.

It is a privilege to celebrate his contributions through the promotions of key members of the team as we wish him a happy, healthy and well-deserved retirement.”

FNB 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.  Robinson joined the Company in 2010 from PNC and served in a variety of senior and executive positions in wealth management and corporate banking. Moorehead joined FNB in 2011 after an extensive banking career in credit and corporate banking at financial institutions throughout Pittsburgh. Robinson and Moorehead will report to Delie. Currently Chief Executive Officer of First National Bank, Delie will once again assume the role of Bank President.
