Building on a tradition of excellence in community banking that stretches back to 1872, BB&T continues to offer clients a complete range of financial services including banking, lending, insurance, trust, and wealth management solutions.

BB&T Corporation, headquartered in Winston-Salem, N.C. , is a fast growing, highly profitable financial holding company with $137 billion in assets. Its bank subsidiaries operate approximately 1,500 financial centers in the Carolinas, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Georgia, Maryland, Tennessee, Florida, Alabama, Indiana and Washington, D.C. BB&T ranks No. 2 in market share in North Carolina; No. 4 in Virginia/Washington, D.C.; No. 3 in South Carolina; No. 1 in West Virginia; No. 5 in Georgia; No. 6 in Maryland; No. 4 in Kentucky; and No. 6 in Tennessee.

BB&T's operating strategy distinguishes it from other financial holding companies. BB&T's banking subsidiaries are organized as a group of community banks, each with a regional president, which allows decisions to be made locally, close to the client. This also makes BB&T's client service more responsive, reliable and empathetic.

Since 1989, BB&T has completed the acquisition of 60 community banks and thrifts, more than 85 insurance agencies, and 35 non-bank financial services companies. This acquisition strategy has contributed significantly to BB&T's success.

BB&T Corporation is one of the top financial holding companies in the United States of America.
