RICHMOND, Va., May 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Union Bank & Trust (“Union”) today announced John G. Stallings has changed positions to become Senior Executive Vice President as he focuses on a health concern.
"I was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma, a relatively rare disease also known as bile duct cancer," said John Stallings. "As I continue to respond well to the excellent medical care from my Massey Cancer Center team, it is best that I now step back from my role as President of the Bank to strike a balance between my work duties and my health. In my new role at Union, I am excited to remain engaged and continue to contribute to the success of our clients and the bank. I believe that Union is the premier bank in our footprint and am proud to be a part of the first regional bank headquartered in Virginia in more than 20 years."
“John has made a meaningful contribution to Union and our priority, at this time, is to ensure he is in the best position to successfully address his medical needs. I am pleased he will be able to do so while continuing to help the bank as a key advisor to me and assisting our leadership team with business development and talent acquisition,” said John C. Asbury, CEO of Union Bank & Trust. “His positive, can-do attitude embodies the culture of Union.”
Effective immediately, Asbury has been reappointed President of Union Bank & Trust and the bank will conduct a national search for a President. In his new role, Stallings will continue to report to Asbury and remain a part of the bank’s executive leadership team.
