McKee to retire from Citizens
Greg McKee will retire as president and CEO of The Citizens Bank of Philadelphia on Jan. 31, 2023, the bank announced last Tuesday. He will continue as a member of the Board of Directors.
Citizens is expected to name a successor within the next two weeks following a national search.
McKee will remain as President and CEO of Citizens Holding Company and a member of that Board of Directors.
“This announcement is made at the conclusion of a diligent and thorough succession search that was done by a nationally recognized executive search firm engaged by the Bank’s Board of Directors,” the bank said in a statement reported by Business Wire Tuesday.
“It is anticipated that a public announcement regarding the appointment of a new Chief Executive Officer of the bank will be made within the next two weeks.”
McKee joined the Bank in 1982 and has been President and CEO since 2002.
McKee said: “I am very appreciative of the loyalty and support of employees, customers, and shareholders. Without that, my career, and the things that have been accomplished would be considerably different. I look forward to the successes and accomplishments that the Bank and its management will achieve in the future.”
“On behalf of the Board of Directors and our Shareholders, I would like to thank Greg for his decades of loyal service and servant leadership to this institution, enabling the Bank to grow and serve Mississippi communities across our footprint," said Herbert King, chairman of the Board.
"During his over 20-year tenure, the bank’s assets have grown $400 million to over $1.4 billion and has attracted and retained an outstanding group of leaders and staff that are dedicated to our mission.”
The Citizens Bank of Philadelphia is headquartered in Philadelphia and has 28 banking locations in 14 counties in the state.
