Appoints Brett D. Fulk Chief Executive Officer
HARRISBURG – Riverview Financial Corp., the holding company of Riverview Bank, has announced that Kirk D. Fox has resigned as chief executive officer and director of Riverview Financial and Riverview Bank.
Riverview Financial and Riverview Bank President, Brett D. Fulk, has been named president and chief executive officer of Riverview Financial and Riverview Bank.
Fulk is currently a member of the board of directors of both entities. Fox will be available to assist in the transition of the CEO role to Fulk.
“After discussing 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 $1.0 billion in total assets. I am confident in the strategic direction of the bank going forward under Brett’s leadership,” Fox said.
“Kirk’s leadership has been instrumental in Riverview’s success and growth as a company. During his tenure, we completed transformational mergers with CBT Financial Corp., The Citizens National Bank of Meyersdale, Union Bank and Trust Corp, Halifax National Bank and Marysville National Bank, acquired multiple independent wealth management advisory firms and recently expanded our shareholder base as a public company when our shares of voting common stock were approved for listing on the Nasdaq Global Market. We thank Kirk for his focus on building the strong franchise we have today,” said John G. Soult Jr., chairman of the board of directors.
“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 2011. He understands our strategy and approach to banking, putting our customers first. Brett and the rest of the executive team remain committed to continuing to increase long-term shareholder value.”
Fulk’s appointment as president and chief executive officer combines both the role of the chief executive officer with the role of president.
Soult noted, “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-to-day management of the company.”
Fulk has been the president and a director of Riverview Financial and Riverview Bank since 2015.
Fulk joined Riverview Bank as the chief operations officer in 2011. From 1991 until 2011, he served as a managing director of commercial services, Pennsylvania division, regional executive and region president for Susquehanna Bank and its predecessor bank, Community Banks.
