Daniel P. Dyer, the chief executive officer of Marlin Business Services in Mount Laurel, N.J., has retired.

Dyer had been the CEO and a director since he founded Marlin in 1997. Before launching the now $713 million-asset bank, he held other financial services positions including chief financial officer at Atlanta Bank.

"I look forward with anticipation to pursuing new opportunities of a personal and career interest," he said in a press release Tuesday.

Edward J. Siciliano, an executive vice president and the chief sales officer, will be acting CEO until the board confirms a permanent replacement. It has hired executive search firm Korn Ferry to lead the selection process.
