Park National Corp. in Newark, Ohio, has tapped an insider to succeed John Kozak when he retires as chief financial officer next year.

Kozak, who has been undergoing cancer treatment since 2009, will retire in April 2013 due to health issues, the $7 billion-asset company said Monday. Brady Burt, Park National's chief accounting officer, will succeed Kozak, who has been the chief financial officer since 1998.

Burt joined Park National in 2007 from Vail Banks Inc., where he had been the chief financial officer. Park National said that Matthew Miller, its vice president of accounting, will succeed Burt as chief accounting officer.
