SunTrust Banks appointed Kevin Blair as corporate treasurer, effective July 1. Blair will report to SunTrust Chief Financial Officer Aleem Gillani and oversee the company’s liquidity, capital management, investment portfolio and balance sheet strategy.

“Kevin Blair is a 17-year SunTrust veteran – a proven leader with broad experience in both finance and business line management,” said Gillani. “He brings a formidable understanding of how treasury and the business can work together on behalf of clients in today’s changing economic and regulatory environment.”

Most recently, Blair was head of SunTrust’s commercial specialty segments. In this capacity, he led several businesses for the organization including auto dealer, insurance premium financing and small business administration lending.  In addition, he oversaw the development and implementation of additional industry-based specialties within the commercial and business banking line of business.  Previously, he served as the head of the Georgia/North Florida region for SunTrust and has held roles in corporate strategy, line management, strategic finance and credit risk management.  Blair began his financial services career with Signet Bank in Richmond in 1995, and joined SunTrust in June 1998.

Blair has been a director on the Georgia Chamber of Commerce Board, where he also served as vice chair of the Tax and Finance Committee. He volunteers on the board of America’s Second Harvest for the Coastal Region, and is active in a number of civic and community activities.

Blair holds a bachelor’s degree in Management and Economics from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA, and he earned an MBA from George Washington University with a concentration in Financial Management.
