The CEO of Spirit of Texas Bancshares in Conroe has returned to work after recovering from coronavirus.

The $2.4 billion-asset company said in a regulatory filing Monday that Dean Bass, who is also chairman, ended his temporary medical leave of absence.

Spirit of Texas announced on April 8 that Bass had contracted COVID-19 and was stepping aside to fight the illness. The company said at that time that David McGuire, its president, would serve as interim CEO, and that Steven Morris, a director, was acting chairman.

The company said in its latest filing that McGuire and Morris relinquished their interim duties when Bass returned.
