First National Community Bancorp. (FNCB) in Dunmore, Pa., has promoted three executives.

The $938 million-asset company said Monday that it had named Joseph Earyes chief retail banking and operations officer. He oversees retail and branch banking at First National, including deposit and loan operations, information-technology and electronic banking. He will serve as bank program manager for First National’s wealth management unit. Earyes joined First National in 2008 as a retail banking officer and was a senior vice president before the promotion.

In addition, Brian Mahlstedt was named chief lending officer, leading First National’s commercial lending teams, and Cathy Conrad was named credit administration officer for First National’s bank. Mahlstedt and Conrad had been senior vice presidents at the company.

All three positions are new and the promotions took place this year, Earyes said.

The appointments “further strengthen our management group with highly experienced individuals possessing considerable industry background, strong knowledge of our markets and thorough understanding of our institution," Steven Tokach, the company’s chief executive, said in a press release. “These appointments illustrate FNCB's continued willingness to invest in our leadership team, which ensures that we have the talent in place to manage our business model and planned growth."    

In August, First National agreed to sell a branch, along with other unspecified assets, to Essa Bancorp (ESSA).
