BRIDGEPORT, Conn. George W. Morriss, the executive vice president and chief financial officer of Peoples Bank, has resigned to pursue other interests, the bank said Thursday.
Mr. Morriss, 53, said in an interview that his potential is limited at Peoples because he and chief executive officer John A. Klein are the same age.
He said he had decided to leave now because the bank is in terrific shape and the transition to Mr. Klein as CEO, which began two years ago, is complete.
Mr. Morriss will leave his post March 15. He said he did not know what he will do after that.
He has been CFO since 1991.
