Wiggs Leads BB&T's New Wealth Management Unit

Steve Wiggs is heading up BB&T Corp.'s new wealth management division. Formerly president of BB&T's Piedmont Region and a veteran of the firm since 1979, Wiggs assumes control of a division solely dedicated to affluent clients. He reports to Chief Operating Officer Henry Williamson. The new wealth management division is a combination of BB&T's existing personal trust and private financial service departments.

"We've created a new unit dedicated to providing an even deeper level of relationship management and high-touch service to our valued affluent clients," Williamson said. "We're now better positioned to meet our clients' every need and deliver a totally integrated relationship [to] those clients."
