First Financial Bancorp (FFBC) in Cincinnati disclosed that its general counsel has resigned.
Gregory Gehlmann announced plans to leave the $6.3 billion-asset company on Oct. 3, according to a Wednesday regulatory filing. He plans to stay at the company through Oct. 31 assist with the transition. The company did not identify a successor in the filing.
Gehlmann joined First Financial in 2005 and holds the additional title of corporate secretary. His departure is unrelated to any disagreement with the company or concerns about its financial condition or financial reporting practices, the filing said.
Gehlmann "has been a great asset to First Financial, having provided valuable counsel to the company over the past eight years," Claude Davis, the company's president and chief executive, said in the filing. "He skillfully led the company through a number of complex legal matters, while also supporting us through the financial crisis."
First Financial has seen a number of leadership changes in recent months. It divided the title of bank president among three executives in August and announced that chief financial officer, Anthony Stollings, had taken on the additional title of chief administrative officer.
