Fulton CEO Wenger to retire in December

E. Phillip Wenger plans to retire as chairman and CEO of Fulton Financial in Lancaster, Pa. 

The $26 billion-asset Fulton said in a press release Wednesday that Wenger will step down on Dec. 31 after 43 years at the company. Wenger, who became CEO in 2013, will remain on the board. 

Curtis Myers, Fulton’s president and chief operating officer, will succeed Wenger as chairman and CEO.

“I have spent all of my banking career at Fulton, and it has been a privilege to work for such an exceptional company and with such a talented team,” Wenger said in the release. “When I retire in December, I will do so with complete confidence in Curt Myers and his senior management team.” 

Myers joined the bank in 1990 as a member of the management training program. He became president and chief operating officer of the bank in 2010. He became the company’s president and chief operating officer in 2018. 

Wenger helped the company emerge from a series of regulatory orders and oversaw the consolidation of its bank charters. Fulton recently announced its first acquisition in morethan a decade, agreeing to buy Prudential Bancorp in Philadelphia.
