NewF.N.B. Corporation, a diversified financial services company with headquarters in Pittsburgh, announced the appointment of Steve A. Ek as chief consumer credit officer.

"F.N.B. has been very successful at recruiting talented executives from larger organizations and Steve's impressive depth of experience will be additive to our strong credit culture and overall growth strategy," said Vincent J. Delie Jr., president and CEO of F.N.B. and CEO of its largest subsidiary, First National Bank.

In his new position, Ek oversees all aspects of First National Bank's consumer credit function, including monitoring and managing risk in the consumer portfolio. He is also responsible for supporting application processing, loan approvals, and other administrative functions.

"This is an exciting opportunity to join a very successful and dynamic company," Ek said. "The consumer portfolio has grown to significant size, and the entry into new markets creates an excellent opportunity to diversify our portfolio while maintaining F.N.B.'s high standards of credit quality and risk management."
