The CFO of a Sparta-based bank retired and was replaced by the bank’s former COO.
Sparta-based ChoiceOne Financial Services, parent company of ChoiceOne Bank, said it appointed Adom J. Greenland, who previously was secretary and COO of ChoiceOne, to replace Thomas L. Lampen, senior vice president and CFO, upon his retirement, effective Jan. 1.
Greenland’s new title is secretary, CFO and treasurer of ChoiceOne and ChoiceOne Bank.
“Adom is a tremendous leader, and his financial background and experience in bank operations, including our recent mergers, make him an excellent choice for our next CFO,” said ChoiceOne CEO Kelly Potes.
“At the same time, we will miss Tom’s daily presence and wise counsel, as he helped lead ChoiceOne to significant growth and milestones as our chief financial officer over the past 29 years. We wish Tom a happy and healthy retirement; it is certainly well-deserved.”
Greenland, a certified public accountant, has been a senior vice president of ChoiceOne Bank since November 2015 and a vice president of ChoiceOne Bank since 2013.
Prior to his employment with ChoiceOne, Greenland was a senior manager with PricewaterhouseCoopers, a global accounting and consulting firm.
