Farmers National Banc (FMNB) in Canfield, Ohio, has named Kevin Helmick its permanent president and chief executive officer.
Helmick, 41, had served as interim president and chief executive of the $1 billion-asset company since Oct. 4, according to Farmers' Thursday press release. The company's board of directors relieved former CEO John Gulas, 54, of his duties in late September, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. A Farmers National spokeswoman declined to comment on the reasons behind Gulas's exit.
Helmick has spent his entire 18-year career with Farmers National. He was hired as a teller in 1994 and moved up through the ranks, most recently serving as the company's executive vice president of retail and wealth management.
