Park National (PRK) in Newark, Ohio, is giving its president the additional title of chief executive.

The $6.6 billion-asset company said late Monday that David Trautman will succeed C. Daniel Delawder as CEO on Jan 1. Trautman will remain the company's president, keeping a post he has held since 2005.

Delawder, who became CEO in 1999, will remain Park National's chairman.

The company also announced that Brady Burt, its chief financial officer, will succeed Trautman as corporate secretary.

"For the past 30 years, I've had the privilege of working with, and learning from, the finest bankers and customers around," Trautman said in a press release. "It's been great fun and I look forward to learning more from both groups as the years pass."

Park National has 11 banks, an aircraft finance company, and two specialty finance companies.
