Old Kent Financial Corp., Grand Rapids, Mich., has appointed vice chairman Robert H. Warrington to the additional post of chief financial officer.

He succeeded William L. Sanders, CFO since last August, who resigned to pursue other interests, the company said.

Mr. Sanders had come to Old Kent from Los Angeles-based Bank Plus Corp., where he had been executive vice president and CFO since 1995. From 1992 to 1994 he held the same titles at H.F. Ahmanson & Co.

Mr. Warrington is also chairman and CEO of Old Kent Mortgage Co. and remains in charge of Old Kent Bank's investment management, trust, insurance, and brokerage services.

He and Kevin T. Kabat, president and chief operating officer of Old Kent Bank, were elected vice chairmen and directors of the parent company in January.
