Atlantic Community Bankers Bank in Camp Hill, Pa., has lined up its next CEO.

The $821 million-asset company said in a press release Tuesday that Craig Howie will succeed Jon Evans on Jan. 1. Evans, who is retiring this month, will remain with the bank next year as a consultant.

Howie is the bank’s senior executive vice president.

“I’m very grateful for the board’s endorsement and for this opportunity to lead ACBB,” Howie said in the release. “I look forward to strengthening our partnerships with the community financial institutions that we serve and developing new products and services that help them deliver best-in-class service to their customers.”

Howie joined the bank last year when it merged with Bankers’ Bank Northeast, where he was CEO.

Evans has been Atlantic Community’s CEO for 18 years and led multiple growth efforts, including expansion into New York and New Jersey and the company’s development of a specialty business serving de novo banks.

“I’m thankful for nearly two decades serving as CEO … and know the bank is in excellent hands with Craig at the helm,” Evans said in the release.
