Severn Bancorp in Annapolis, Md., has hired a former Susquehanna Bancshares executive as its chief lending officer.

The $780 million-asset Severn said in a press release that Christopher Chick started working on Wednesday, succeeding William Lindlaw, who resigned in April.

Chick previously held several management posts at Susquehanna, which was acquired in August by the $210 billion-asset BB&T in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Severn did not disclose Chick's titles at Susquehanna, though Chick's LinkedIn page said he was a commercial executive in the Baltimore area.

Chick is also a former bank examiner with the Office of Thrift Supervision. He is also a trustee for the Maryland Bankers Association.
