WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Aug. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BB&T (NYSE: BBT) today announced Alex Brame has been named president for its Central Pennsylvania Region. Brame, who served as Lancaster market president, assumed his new role effective Aug. 8.

"Our presence in Central Pennsylvania continues to be critical to our overall growth strategy," said David Weaver, president, BB&T Community Banking.

A native of Dixon, Ill., Brame received his bachelor's degree in financial management from Clemson University and is a graduate of the American Bankers Association Graduate School of Banking at The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. He is a board member of the United Way of Lancaster County; a member of the Lancaster City Alliance, Economic Development Steering Committee; serves on the Community Prosperity Hub Advisory Council for the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce; and is a graduate of Leadership Lancaster.

"I am extremely excited for this new challenge and the opportunity to continue working with the outstanding professional teams we have in our region," Brame said. "I look forward to building on our past accomplishments as this is an area with great growth potential for continuing our service to clients and reaching out to prospects."
