BANK SOUTH ANNOUNCES JIM DEWBERRY AS HEAD OF ATLANTA COMMUNITY BANKING;
 BELINDA MORGAN TO HEAD OPERATIONS
 ATLANTA, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Bank South (NASDAQ: BKSO) announced today that James A. Dewberry, head of Operations at Bank South since 1978, has been named head of Atlanta Community Banking.
 Succeeding Dewberry as head of Operations is Belinda Morgan, formerly manager of Account Servicing.
 Reporting to Dewberry, who is an executive vice president, will be all metro Atlanta Banking Offices, Private Banking, Special Customer Banking, and Special Retail Delivery Systems. Dewberry will report to Lee M. Sessions Jr., senior executive vice president and head of Retail and Trust Banking.
 Dewberry has been with Bank South since 1960, and has extensive and diverse experience in Retail Banking and Operations.
 James J. Segars, senior vice president and formerly head of Electronic Banking Operations, also moves to Retail Banking where he will be responsible for Special Retail Delivery Systems, including In- store and Electronic Banking and Telemarketing.
 "This move means that, once again, Bank South is changing banking in metro Atlanta," Sessions said. "We have a commitment, as a fully integrated team, to use all the tools at our disposal -- technology, excellent retail and operations personnel, aggressive marketing and unmatched convenience -- to have the finest products and the most convenient and innovative delivery systems of any bank in our markets. In fact, we believe that Bank South combines the electronic, In-store and traditional aspects of our delivery systems better than any of our competitors -- a winning combination for customers."
 Sessions continued: "In our largest market of metro Atlanta, we need a leader with diverse experience, knowledge and talent to tie the products and delivery systems together and bring them to the customer. Jim Dewberry's experience in branch banking, lending, operations, automated teller machines, AVAIL/HONOR, and other electronic banking systems make him the ideal choice. Among other things, we're going to be improving our unique In-store service capabilities, taking further advantage of electronic banking, and building a more diverse and innovative range of products and services."
 Said Dewberry: "My move from Operations to Retail is a good example of the teamwork and integration that we're committed to between these two key areas of the bank. Operations and Retail depend on each other to serve customers well. Fortunately, we have the depth and strength in our Operations management team that allows Jim Segars and me to assume these new roles in Retail. Belinda Morgan has proven herself as a manager and leader during 27 years at Bank South. She has earned her new position and will do an outstanding job."
 Dewberry began at Bank South in April 1960 as a silver wrapper in the money vault. During his career he served in a number of capacities, including teller, assistant cashier, branch manager and regional manager. In 1978 he was promoted to Operations Group Head, which later also included responsibility for Information Services. While heading Operations he formed the Electronic Banking Department to further promote the bank's interest in customer convenience through electronic funds transfer and self-service strategies such as automated teller machines.
 Morgan joined Bank South in 1965 as a teller at the Decatur Office, and became assistant manager of the Main Office Branch before moving into the Operations area in 1978. She has diverse experience in both retail and operational areas, and was promoted to senior vice president in 1986. She served as manager of the Programming Department from 1987 through 1991, and in this role managed all computer applications development for the corporation. Most recently she was manager of the Account Servicing Division, which included operational responsibility for all checking, savings and time deposit accounts.
 Segars joined Bank South in 1985 as senior vice president and manager of Bank Operations. His career experience has also included three years at Bank Earnings, Inc., where he was a consultant and study team leader; Glass Rock Medical Services Corp., where he was eastern regional manager, and 13 years with two other banks.
 Bank South Corporation is an Atlanta-based, $4.6 billion bank holding company with 138 offices throughout Georgia and northwest Florida. Bank South has the largest number of automated teller machines of any bank in Georgia, and one of the largest In-store banking networks in the country.
