National Bank Vancouver Mgr From HSBC Leaves

Ronald Walchuk has replaced Peter Evanoff as regional manager in Vancouver, British Columbia, for National Bank of Canada (NA.T), according to people familiar with the situation.
Mr. Walchuk currently oversees the bank's Victoria, B.C., branch and will continue in that role as well as assuming responsibility for National Bank's larger Vancouver region.
A spokeswoman declined to comment. Mr. Evanoff wasn't immediately reachable for comment, and Mr. Walchuk didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
The departure comes in the wake of last year's purchase by National Bank of HSBC's Canadian retail-brokerage unit. Mr. Evanoff formerly worked for HSBC as the Vancouver chief. His exit follows the recent departure of another onetime HSBC manager Mike Miller, the former national sales manager for Ontario and the Atlantic region, who left in March.
