 PITTSBURGH, July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Bruce E. Robbins, a 20-year veteran with PNC Bank, has been named to head the company's corporate banking line of business in addition to his role as president and chief executive officer of PNC Bank, Pittsburgh, it was announced today.
 The new duties become effective for Robbins on Aug. 1, said PNC Bank Chairman Thomas H. O'Brien.
 Robbins succeeds James E. Rohr as head of corporate banking, one of four core lines of business at PNC Bank. Rohr continues as president of the $53 billion Pittsburgh-based bank holding company, as well as president and chief executive officer of PNC Bank, National Association -- the Pennsylvania chartered banks held by the parent company.
 As head of corporate banking, Robbins will be responsible for directing efforts with corporate customers across PNC Bank's five-state service area, as well as selected corporate customers nationwide. The corporate banking line of business represents roughly 25 percent of total corporate earnings for PNC Bank.
 "Bruce is an ideal candidate to head this major line of business for our corporation, having spent more than 17 years in corporate banking," said O'Brien in making the announcement. "Over that time, he has been instrumental in developing and growing a number of significant products and services designed to meet the needs of our corporate customers."
 Robbins joined PNC Bank in 1973 and rose through several management positions in corporate banking before being named executive vice president in 1989. He led the bank's large corporate banking segment, helping to develop corporate services, cash management and credit policy functions that continue today.
 In 1990, he was chosen to serve as president of Cincinnati-based PNC Bank, Ohio, and returned in 1992 as president and chief executive officer of PNC Bank, Pittsburgh.
 Robbins and his wife, Kathleen, live in Upper St. Clair, Pa.
 "In turning over to Robbins the responsibility for corporate banking, Jim Rohr now can devote more attention to his leadership duties at PNC Bank Corp. and PNC Bank, N.A., as well as his role in managing the transition team for the planned merger of the Sears Mortgage Banking Group and PNC Mortgage Company," said O'Brien in making the announcement.
 PNC Bank is one of the largest banking organizations in the United States, with $53.8 billion in assets at June 30, 1993, and more than 550 community banking offices throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware, Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. PNC Bank's major lines of business include retail banking; corporate banking; investment management and trust; and investment banking.
 PNC Bank Corp. (NYSE: PNC) operates as PNC Bank in most of its Pennsylvania markets and in Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio.
