Bank of America yesterday announced that Frances Aldrich Sevilla-Sacasa will become president of the company’s new Private Wealth Management unit upon completion of the Bank’s acquisition of U.S. Trust Corporation in the third quarter of 2007. In her new role, Sevilla- Sacasa will report to Brian Moynihan, president, Bank of America Global Wealth & Investment Management.

Sevilla-Sacasa currently serves as chief executive officer of U.S. Trust, where she recently replaced Peter K. Scaturro. She previously served as president of U.S. Trust.

Following the legal closing, Private Wealth Management at Bank of America will deliver comprehensive, relationship-based financial services to wealthy individuals and their families nationwide and in select international markets. Private Wealth Management will be formed through the combination of U.S. Trust operations with The Private Bank of Bank of America and its Family Wealth Advisors area, and operate as the nation’s largest private bank by assets under management, deposits and number of client relationships.

“Frances is a proven leader in the private wealth management industry who shares our vision for a new organization defined by the needs of our clients and reflective of the complementary strengths of the two predecessor organizations,” said Brian Moynihan. “We will continue to partner closely with Frances and her team as we work to bring our two great organizations together, and look forward to her leadership of the combined business.”

“I greatly look forward to introducing and leading the new Private Wealth Management at Bank of America,” said Sevilla-Sacasa. “The legacy, reputation and future of the new Private Wealth Management at Bank of America will be defined by our commitment to unparalleled client service, innovation, market presence and capabilities excellence.”

The U.S. Trust transition planning and related work remains on track and on schedule, following approval received from the Federal Reserve on March 27, 2007. Closing is expected to occur in the third quarter of 2007.
