Park Sterling names operations and IT head

Park Sterling Corp., the largest regional bank headquartered in the Charlotte area, said in a securities filing Tuesday that it has brought on Mark Ladnier as its new head of operations and information technology.

Ladnier will oversee deposit and loan operations alongside IT. He comes to the bank from Premier Alliance, a Charlotte-based consulting and advisory firm.

Before that, Ladnier had been in executive positions at Wells Fargo, and Wachovia before the San Francisco bank bought it.

His addition is the third senior vice president hiring announced the bank this week. On Monday, Park Sterling said it had hired heads of wealth management and mortgage lending as part of a broader expansion into Virginia.
