MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Capital One Financial Corporation (NYSE: COF) today announced that Benjamin P. "Ben" Jenkins, III, former Vice Chairman of Wachovia Corporation and former President of its General Bank and Catherine G.

Jenkins and West will fill two newly created seats on the Board and will stand for election by Capital One stockholders in May 2013.

"Ben and Catherine bring decades of extensive banking experience and strong leadership to the Board and I am extremely pleased to welcome them to Capital One," said Richard D. Fairbank, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capital One.   "Ben has had an exceptional banking career and we are privileged to benefit from his industry insights and expertise.  Catherine brings a unique combination of financial, business, and regulatory experience to Capital One.  Both will make excellent additions to our Board and will be valuable resources for our executive management team.  We look forward to working with them."

With more than forty years of banking experience, Jenkins is the former Vice Chairman of Wachovia Corporation and the former President of its General Bank. He retired from Wachovia in December 2008 and most recently served as Senior Advisor, Managing Director, and Vice Chairman for Retail Banking at Morgan Stanley & Co. in New York from January 2009 to January 2011. Jenkins began his banking career at Wachovia's predecessor and held several key leadership positions for Wachovia's banking operations. In 1999, he was appointed head of the General Bank. Jenkins and his team were instrumental in the integration of the First Union/Wachovia and Wachovia/SouthTrust mergers, and he led the successful expansion of Wachovia's banking network into Manhattan, Texas, and California. In 2005, he was named Vice Chairman of the corporation.
