The team also includes Ryan Bierds, CFA, senior vice president and regional director of portfolio management; Chad Forsberg, senior vice president and financial planning strategist, and Mary Petry, relationship management associate.

"BB&T's wealth advisors provide the information and solutions our clients need to make better decisions, with the same focus on quality client service that is a 141-year-old tradition at BB&T," Walker said.
