Truist has named Chris Isley as its new eastern North Carolina regional president.

The current regional president, Phil Marion, will retire on Sept. 30 after more than 40 years in banking. Isley assumed the new role on Sept. 7 and is in the process of relocating to Wilson.

“Chris has spent his career in North Carolina baking and has successfully led teams that live out the Truist purpose to inspire and build better lives and communities,” David Weaver, Truist commercial community banking officer, said in a news release. “We thank Phil for his commitment to Truist and years of service and congratulate him on his well-deserved retirement.”

Isley started his career in banking in 1987 and joined BB&T in 2001, working his way up to Cary market president in 2005 and Raleigh market president in 2010. Marion has served as the regional president since 2012.

BB&T traces its roots to Branch and Hadley Bank, founded in Wilson in 1872. BB&T Corp. completed its merger of equals with SunTrust Banks to become Truist Financial Corp. in December 2019.
