American Perspective Bank announced the resignation of Thomas J. Beene, the bank’s president and chief executive officer, who decided to leave the bank to pursue other professional opportunities, according to a press release.

Mr. Beene began working for the Bank in September 2009 following the resignation of Dave Booker.

The Bank’s Board of Directors appointed the bank’s Executive Vice President and Chief Credit Officer Mark A. Crawford, 50, to succeed Beene as president and chief executive officer.

“We understand Tom Beene’s desire to move in another direction at this point in his career,” said Thomas J. Madden III, the bank’s chairman of the board. “The bank is fortunate to have a deep and experienced management team, including a very well qualified successor such as Mark Crawford. The appointment of Crawford will facilitate a smooth transition and the continued effective management of the Bank.”
