— BB&T announced Wednesday that J. Littleton "Litt" Glover Jr. has been elected to the corporate board of directors.

Glover, an Atlanta lawyer and commercial real estate developer, joins the board after 10 years as a director of Branch Banking and Trust Company, the principal subsidiary of BB&T Corporation.

"Because Litt has been a member of our bank board for a decade now, he clearly knows our organization well," said BB&T Chairman John Allison said in a release. "By the same token, we've gotten to know and respect him very much as well. He'll undoubtedly be a great addition to our corporate board of directors."

Glover, 66, is president and a director of Glover & Davis, P.A., in west Georgia.

Glover is the second addition to the 19-member board of directors this year. In June, Piedmont Natural Gas Chief Executive Officer Tom Skains was elected to the board.
