Chemung Financial (CHMG) in Elmira, N.Y., has lured a former executive out of retirement to serve as interim chief financial officer.

John Battersby will also step in as treasurer at the $1.3 billion-asset company and its bank. The company said in a regulatory filing Wednesday that Battersby will succeed Mark Severson, who stepped down earlier this month to take another position.

Battersby, 62, was Chemung's CFO from 2004 to 2012, when he retired.
