Chesapeake Bancorp in Chestertown, Md., has a new president and chief executive.

The $104 million-asset company said in a press release that hired Al Wilson, who resigned from AmeriServ Financial last month. Wilson succeeded Richard Coffman, who will remain a director at the company and its Chesapeake Bank & Trust.

Wilson has run 10 banks that are of similar size as Chesapeake, the company said. Additionally, Wilson was a national chairman of the Risk Management Association and vice chairman of the Pennsylvania Bankers Association.

Chesapeake's previous president and chief executive, James Anthony, stepped down in June to become chief operating officer at the $789 million-asset Severn Savings Bank in Annapolis.

Chesapeake has three branches in Chestertown.
