RICHMOND, Va. — BB&T Scott & Stringfellow announced the opening of an office in Williamston.

Scott West, senior vice president and financial advisor, and Barbara Lee, client service associate, are joining the firm to open the Williamston office. Scott has more than 27 years of experience in the financial services industry. He joins us from Merrill Lynch and is dedicated to providing clients with individually tailored investment strategies. At the heart of his philosophy is a passion to build long lasting client relationships through his commitment to providing outstanding guidance and service.

As a lifelong resident of eastern North Carolina, Scott graduated Summa Cum Laude from East Carolina University. He lives in Williamston with his wife, Patti, and their three children.

In 1893, Frederic William Scott and Charles S. Stringfellow Jr. entered a partnership to establish a full-service retail brokerage and investment banking firm in Richmond, Va. In 1999, we opened a new chapter in our history when Scott & Stringfellow became part of BB&T Corporation. With shared values and dedication to clients’ well-being, the organizations aligned perfectly, bringing expanded and complementary capabilities to each. In 2013, the power of that partnership became even more visible as we blended our names to become BB&T Scott & Stringfellow. The connected names reflect the scope and impact of the fully integrated, collective resources our financial advisors are able to deliver in conjunction with the resources available through BB&T.

BB&T Scott & Stringfellow has 56 offices in Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Texas. Together with BB&T Capital Markets and BB&T Securities, we employ more than 1,000 associates.
