Globe Newswire 17-Apr-2018 3:45 PM

WEST POINT, Va., April 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- C&F Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:CFFI), the one-bank holding company for C&F Bank, announced today that Larry G. Dillon, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation and the Bank, notified the Board of his intention to step back from being Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation and the Bank toward the end of 2018. Mr. Dillon will continue to be involved in corporate strategy and corporate governance as Executive Chairman of the Board.

In connection with Mr. Dillon's notification, it is intended that Thomas F. Cherry, President of the Corporation and the Bank, will be appointed President and Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation and the Bank when Mr. Dillon transitions from being Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Cherry will continue to serve as a member of the Board of Directors of the Corporation and the Bank as well.

"These changes reflect the transition anticipated in our long-term management succession plan," said Larry Dillon. "While I plan to continue to be very active in the affairs of the Company, we have been developing Tom for this leadership role and he is well-prepared and ready to handle it. In addition, we are very fortunate to have an exceptional management team to work with as we lead the Company into the future."

"C&F has experienced tremendous success under Larry's leadership for 40-plus years," said Tom Cherry. "Larry and I have worked together very closely for the past twenty years, and our philosophies about C&F's future are so aligned that I doubt anyone will recognize any change in the way this company is managed or the direction that it will be taking."
