HARRISBURG, Pa. - Dauphin Deposit Corp. said Wednesday that it had named Robert Fryer Jr. president and chief operating officer.

Mr. Fryer, currently the chairman and chief executive of Hopper Soliday & Co., a Dauphin securities underwriting subsidiary, will succeed Christopher Jennings, who took over as chairman and chief executive following the January retirement of William King.

Mr. Fryer, 46, will also serve on the holding company's board of directors, the bank said.

Mr. Fryer began his career in 1967 with Butcher & Singer, an investment banking firm in Philadelphia. He later moved on to Philadelphia National Bank where he became a municipal bond officer.

Mr. Fryer came to Lancaster-based Hopper as a registered representative in 1983 and moved his way up to CEO when it was acquired by the $5 billion- asset Dauphin Deposit in 1991.
