Sun Bancorp (SNBC) in Vineland, N.J., has hired a veteran banking executive to become its chief credit officer.

The $3.2 billion-asset company said in a press release Monday that Imran Riaz has 20 years of experience in credit and commercial lending, including 14 years at TD Bank, where he recently served as a managing senior credit officer.

"We are pleased to … have such an accomplished banking professional join our team," Thomas Geisel, Sun's president and chief executive, said in the release. "Imran's extensive experience in credit, portfolio analysis and specialty lending, plus his knowledge of the regulatory and compliance environments, will contribute to our credit team's ongoing achievements."

Riaz succeeds Stephen Rooney, who had been acting chief credit officer. Rooney will continue to serve as senior credit officer for Sun's central New Jersey region.
