BANKING AND CREDIT NEWS-November 11, 2014--Bank of the West opens Atlanta US office


11 November 2014 -- France-based BNP Paribas' US-based Bank of the West subsidiary said it has opened an office in Metro Atlanta in response to its growing client base in Atlanta and the Southeast corridor.

As a hub for global business on the East Coast, the move also reflects the region's growing international business community, the bank said.

As part of BNPP's global network of 75 countries and more than 185,000 employees worldwide, Bank of the West ushers clients to a new phase of growth, whether they operate locally, nationally or internationally.

The office, centrally located in Buckhead, is being led by longtime Atlanta banker Chris Torie, who has been part of the city's banking community since 1982.

In addition to serving as managing director of the Atlanta office, Torie will also manage the bank's commercial banking relationships throughout the Southeast.

Prior to joining Bank of the West, Torie served as the regional vice president of Commercial Banking for Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC).

Bank of the West is a regional financial services company chartered in California and headquartered in San Francisco with USD 69bn in assets. Founded in 1874, Bank of the West provides a range of personal, commercial, wealth management and international banking services through more than 650 offices in 21 states and the Internet.
