Bank of Commerce Holdings (BOCH) in Redding, Calif., continued to revamp its executive team by hiring Robert Muttera as chief credit officer.

Muttera will succeed Robert Rowe, who resigned to take another job, the $932 million-asset company said Thursday. Muttera, 60, is chief credit officer at American River Bankshares (AMRB); he will join Bank of Commerce on Jan. 17.

Muttera "has extensive experience in credit administration and executive bank management, and will be a valuable asset to our leadership team," Bank of Commerce Chief Executive Randall Eslick said in a press release.

Bank of Commerce said Thursday that it also gave Samuel Jimenez, its chief financial officer, the additional title of chief operating officer.

Bank of Commerce has seen substantial management turnover in the past year. Ken Gifford, its former chairman, died in February. The company elected Lyle Tullis to fill the role.

Last month, it promoted Eslick to be its president and CEO, shifting former CEO Patrick Moty to the role of president for the Redding region.
