Rudd succeeded Paul Watson, who resigned this summer. Rudd brings "a vast knowledge of the banking industry and a depth of experience in financial service and product delivery, combined with outstanding leadership skills," Jim Robinson, Heritage's chief executive, said in a press release.

Heritage, which was formed in 2005, operates two branches in Columbia.
