First Bank Promotes Currie to President and Expands CFO Bostian’s Responsibilities

North Carolina-based community bank First Bank, the wholly-owned subsidiary of First Bancorp, named Adam Currie president, reporting to Mike Mayer, CEO of the bank. Currie is assuming operational responsibilities for all of the bank’s activities, including all lending and branch functions along with marketing, operations, IT and credit administration.

In addition to Currie’s new role, Elizabeth Bostian, CFO of the bank, will assume responsibility for human resources as a managed line of business while continuing to lead all financial management functions. 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. Currie has more than 20 years of experience in financial services, including roles in retail banking, commercial banking and capital markets. Bostian has been with First Bank since 2012 and has been CFO since 2021.

“We are very excited for both Adam and Elizabeth as they assume additional responsibilities,” Mayer said. “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.”
