Upon completion of the integration, John Abbott, former President and Chief Executive Office of Summit Community Bank, announced his retirement after many years in the banking industry. Abbott will be turning over the reins to local native Chris Nugent who has been named Market President.
Chris Nugent has been with Summit Community Bank since its inception and most recently held the position of Senior Vice President and Chief Lending Officer.
