Barnes, who was considered along with other internal and external candidates, took over as interim president and CEO when Philip R. Sherringham left in April. He originally worked for Chittenden Bank from 1983 until its 2008 acquisition by People's United.

Carter said in the statement.

In Fremont, Calif., Haruo Tsutsumi was named chief credit officer of Fremont Bank, according to a press release last month. In his new role, he'll manage the $2.4 billion bank's commercial loan portfolio including strategic policy, analysis and reporting.

Before his latest job, Tsutsumi spent 20 years in loan policy and portfolio management. He was an EVP at Pacific Commerce Bank.

The newly created position of managing director of regulatory affairs at First Michigan Bank was filled, an Aug. 9 news release indicated. In her new job, Mary M. Fowlie will manage all regulatory compliance and community reinvestment act compliance at the $0.1 billion bank. She previously held several group senior VP spots at LaSalle Bank Midwest N.A.
