financial officer will leave the company at the end of this month.

John R. Spruill, who went to work at the $7.9 billion-asset company in 1995, will step down Oct. 29. He said he is leaving CNB, which is selling to Cincinnati's Fifth Third Bancorp, because "it is time for me to move on to another challenge."

Fifth Third said last Friday that it had received shareholder and regulatory approval for its $2.1 billion deal for CNB. The company expects to complete the deal this year.
