The chief financial officer of WSFS Financial in Wilmington, Del., is leaving the bank holding company for Seacoast Banking in Stuart, Fla.

Steve Fowle has offered to stay with the $4.7 billion-asset WSFS thorough the remainder of the first quarter until a replacement can be found. In a press release Thursday announcing the move, WSFS said a "wide search" will be conducted for a new CFO.

On Jan. 29 the bank reported a profit of $12.7 million, an 11.4% increase from the year before, for the fourth quarter of 2014.

"While I look forward to this next step for me and my family," Fowle said in Thursday's press release, "I will always be proud to have been a part of WSFS during a decade of significant growth."

His future employer, Seacoast, has $2.4 billion in assets.
