CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

FCB Financial Holdings, Inc., parent company of First Chatham Bank has announced that Brian Foster has retired as President and CEO of both the Holding Company and First Chatham Bank.

Foster was a member of the original eighteen local organizers that founded First Chatham Bank in January of 2002. He began his banking career as a teller with C&S Bank in Athens while attending the University of Georgia, and June marks his 45th year in banking.

In a statement, Foster said, "I have enjoyed a remarkable career in banking and have only worked for two banks during that time- C&S and its successors and FCB. This has been my target retirement year, and I am pleased that the bank is performing so well that we can make this transition to a new leadership and not miss a beat."

The boards of the Holding Company and First Chatham Bank have elected Ken Farrell, Executive Vice President and Senior Credit Officer of FCB, to serve as the interim President and CEO while a formal search is undertaken to identify Foster's ultimate successor.
