Glenn Gray is now chief executive of South County Bank N.A., a subsidiary of Rancho Santa Margarita-based CalWest Bancorp.
Gray resigned from the chief post at Tustin-based Sunwest Bank in May, after six years on the job.
Sunwest named Chris Walsh as chief executive following Gray’s departure. Walsh also continues in his role as president of the bank.
