WSFS Financial (WSFS) Chief Executive Mark Turner has been picked to lead a Delaware business group.

Turner was elected to a two-year term as chairman of the Delaware Business Roundtable on Oct. 28, WSFS announced Monday. He succeeds Bill Willis, president of Willis Automotive Group, who became chairman in 2011.

The Delaware Business Roundtable is a trade and public-policy group composed of CEOs and executives of Delaware companies. Recently it has pushed for reforms to the state's education policies and its system of arbitration.

"I am honored to be selected by my peers to help advance the beneficial interest of business in Delaware and the quality of life for all we serve," Turner said in the news release.

Turner, 49, has been CEO of the $4.4 billion-asset WSFS since 2007, and previously served as the company's chief operating and chief financial officer. Before joining WSFS, he worked for CoreStates Bank in Wilmington and KPMG, according to the WSFS' latest proxy filing.
