Promotions at United Savings Bank were inaccurately described in yesterday's Washington Business. The correct promotions are: Susan M. Browning to vice president, real estate lending; Francine D. Maestri to vice president, marketing; Margaret Schnoor to vice president, administrative services; Mark J. Belefski, David H. Bowman and Ilona T. Conolly to assistant vice president; Elizabeth A.

Following the year-end changes that have made the Bank of Virginia a multi-bank holding company, Robert M. Freeman has been named president and chief executive officer.

"We are fortunate to have an outstanding executive ready to assume these added responsibilities," said Frederick Deane Jr., chairman of the Bank of Virginia.

Freeman, a Richmond native, came to the bank after eight years with the Wachovia Bank and Trust Co. in Raleigh, N.C. He was the Bank of Virginia's chief operating officer and, before becoming bank president, was vice chairman and director of the newly consolidated Bank of Virginia and the parent Bank of Virginia Co.

The Union Trust Bancorp of Maryland and the Bank of Virginia Co. merged to become the Bank of Virginia Co., which will have a new name later this year. The holding company has a senior management team of four, which includes Deane as chairman, J. Stevenson Peck as president, Freeman as vice chairman, and Freeman's counterpart from Union Trust Bank of Maryland, William H. Cowie Jr., as vice chairman.

Deane relinquished his duties of chief executive officer to Freeman so that he could concentrate on his new duties.

A 1968 graduate of the University of Virginia, Freeman was awarded the McIntire School of Commerce's first Distinguished Service Award in recognition of his leadership contributions. He graduated from the Stonier Graduate School of Banking in 1971 and completed the Colgate Darden Graduate School's Executive Program at the University of Virginia in 1976.

In addition to his duties at the bank, Freeman is president-elect of the Virginia Bankers Association.

The George Washington University Hospital's Board of Trustees has appointed William F. Minogue, M.D., as medical director to replace acting medical director Dennis O'Leary, M.D.

The native of Missouri will leave New Jersey's Overlook Hospital, where he began as director of medical education and later served as vice president for medical affairs.

His goal is to provide the tools needed by the staff to "practice first-class medicine" while remaining conscious of fiscal restraints, he said.

"I plan to work with the medical staff and administration to continue the momentum that is cleary already here," he said.

Minogue received his medical degree from New York Medical College in 1960 and completed his internship and residency at St. Vincent's Hospital in New York City. He has served as clinical professor of medicine at both Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and the College of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Rutgers Medical School.
