Mark R. McCollom will join Fulton Financial Services as senior executive vice president and a member of Fulton Financial’s senior management team, effective November 2017. McCollom will assume the role of CFO in early 2018 from Philmer H. Rohrbaugh, the company’s interim CFO.

McCollom was senior managing director and chief operating officer of Griffin Financial Group, an investment banking and financial advisory firm headquartered in Reading, PA. He has more than 30 years of financial services experience in various positions with different entities.

Prior to his position at Griffin Financial, McCollom served as the chief financial officer of Sovereign Bancorp, which was acquired by Banco Santander.

At Fulton Financial, the scope of McCollom’s responsibilities will include: accounting, treasury, corporate development, tax, financial planning and forecasting, investor relations, line of business finance and administrative services. He also will be responsible for advising senior management and the board of directors on all financial matters.

“Mark has significant experience in banking and finance, having previously served as the CFO of Sovereign Bancorp, Inc.,” said E. Philip Wenger, chairman, president and CEO of Fulton Financial. “We look forward to welcoming Mark to our team and leveraging his knowledge and skills to continue to grow our company.”

Rohrbaugh, who has served Fulton Financial most recently as both chief operating officer and interim CFO, and previously as chief risk officer, announced that he plans to retire, effective March 30, 2018, following the transition of his CFO duties to McCollom. Rohrbaugh joined Fulton in 2012 and has played a significant role in leading the transformation of Fulton Financial’s risk management culture and improving operational efficiencies.

Craig A. Roda, Fulton Financial’s senior EVP of Community Banking also announced his retirement, effective May 1, 2018. Roda joined Fulton Bank in 1979 and has been instrumental in modernizing consumer banking at Fulton Financial and has remained a tireless advocate for the Lancaster community.

Curtis J. Myers will take on the roles of president and COO, effective January 1, 2018. Upon Roda’s retirement, he will become chairman, president and CEO of Fulton Bank. Myers currently serves as senior executive vice president for Fulton Financial and is president and COO of Fulton Bank. Myers has been with Fulton since 1990.

Fulton Financial also promoted the following staff members to its senior management team, effective January 1, 2018:

“We’re excited for the future and ready for new opportunities in 2018,” said Wenger. “We will continue to have an experienced and robust Senior Management team, all of whom bring expertise and a commitment to our company. Most importantly, we will all work together over the next several months to ensure a smooth and unified transition so we can continue to provide excellent service to our customers and value to our shareholders.”
