First Bank, the wholly owned subsidiary of First Bancorp and the largest North Carolina headquartered community bank, announced changes to its executive leadership structure in order to more effectively execute its strategic vision. Effective November 13, 2023, Adam Currie was named President of First Bank, reporting to Mike Mayer, CEO of the Bank. Adam assumes operational responsibilities for all of the Bank's activities including all Lending and Branch functions along with Marketing, Operations, IT and Credit Administration. Elizabeth Bostian, CFO of the Bank, will continue to lead all financial management functions and will assume responsibility for Human Resources as a managed line of business. Mike Mayer will continue as CEO of the Bank and President of First Bancorp.

Currie has been with First Bank since 2015 in various roles, including, most recently, Chief Banking Officer. He holds a B.A. in Economics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  Currie has over 20 years of experience in financial services including roles in retail banking, commercial banking, and capital markets.

"We are very excited for both Adam and Elizabeth as they assume additional responsibilities. These strategic changes are what we need to continue to stay nimble, innovative and forward-thinking. First Bank is now poised, more than ever, to embrace the future and bring value to our customers, associates and stakeholders," said Mike Mayer, First Bank CEO.
