Summit State Bank in Santa Rosa, Calif., has a new chief executive.
The $513 million-asset bank said in a press release Tuesday that James Brush was also named its president. Brush, who joined Summit State’s board in 2009, is a business consultant who also chaired the bank’s loan committee.
Brush succeeded Thomas Duryea, who resigned after eight years as the bank’s president and CEO. Duryea was the bank’s chief credit officer before being named president and CEO.
“I’d like to thank the board … for entrusting me with setting the vision, the culture, defining a new business model and retaining the top flight banking team to create what has become the leading community bank in Sonoma County,” Duryea said in the release.
