Peoples Bancorp Inc. has found a permanent replacement for its top executive.

On Friday, the $1.8 billion-asset company in Marietta, Ohio, said it had hired Charles W. Sulerzyski, a former regional president for KeyCorp's Great Lakes region, to serve as president and chief executive, effective April 4.

Sulerzyski will succeed David L. Mead, a director who took the top positions on an interim basis in August after Mark F. Bradley resigned. Last month, the company said that Mead was leaving to return to work as a finance professor at Marietta College.
