The chief operations officer at First Advantage Bancorp (FABK) in Clarksville, Tenn., will moonlight at the bank for the foreseeable future.
Gerald Lee Cooksey Jr. was named First Advantage's interim chief financial officer, the $362 million-asset company said in a regulatory filing Wednesday. He was also named acting corporate secretary. He will fill the same vacancies at the company's First Advantage Bank.
Cooksey, 47, had served as the controller of First Security Group (FSGI) and its FSGBank in Chattanooga, Tenn., before joined First Advantage earlier this year. His background also includes a stint as the CFO at Clayton Bank and Trust in Knoxville, Tenn.
