Riverview Bank names new CEO
Riverview Bank CEO Kirk Fox is resigning, and Brett Fulk, the bank's president, has been chosen to take his place.
Fulk has been president and director of the Susquehanna Township-based Riverview Financial Corp. and Riverview Bank since 2015. He will be assisted by Fox during the transition, according to a news release.
Fox's resignation was effective Jan. 2, according to Scott Seasock, Riverview's CFO.
“After discussing this with my family, I believe this is the right time for me to make this change. I am proud of what our management team has been able to accomplish over the past 10 years, including growing the bank to over $1 billion in total assets,” Fox said in the release.
John G. Soult Jr., chairman of the bank's board of directors, said Fox played an instrumental role in completing mergers with CBT Financial Corp., The Citizens National Bank of Meyersdale, Union Bank and Trust Corp., Halifax National Bank and Marysville National Bank.
“We thank Kirk for his focus on building the strong franchise we have today,” Soult said in the release. “Brett was a natural choice as Riverview’s next CEO as he has been an integral part of the management team since becoming the chief operating officer in 2001,” he said.
Fulk’s appointment brings together the role of CEO at the bank with the role of president.
“Consolidating the CEO and president positions provides a more efficient leadership model and governance structure for Riverview, which we believe will effectively facilitate the execution of our business plan and the day-t-day management of the company,” Soult said.
Fulk joined Riverview Bank as the COO in 2011.
From 1991 until 2011, he was an executive at Susquehanna Bank and Community Banks.
Riverview Financial Corp. is the parent company of Riverview Bank and its operating divisions: Citizens Neighborhood Bank, CBT Bank, Riverview Wealth Management and CBT Financial and Trust Management. It has 33 offices in Berks, Blair, Centre, Clearfield, Dauphin, Huntingdon, Lebanon, Lycoming, Northumberland, Perry, Schuylkill and Somerset counties.
