Sierra Bancorp Announces Management Transition

PORTERVILLE, Calif., Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of Sierra Bancorp (Nasdaq:BSRR), parent of Bank of the Sierra (the "Bank"), today announced the promotion of Kevin J. McPhaill to President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company and the Bank, effective January 1, 2014.  James C. Holly, the current President and Chief Executive Officer, will continue to serve as CEO of the Company and the Bank.

Holly explained that the Board has temporarily separated the offices of President and CEO to allow for an orderly management succession with minimal disruption, and it is anticipated that Mr. McPhaill will ultimately be named as President and CEO.  The timing for the final phase of the transition has not yet been determined.

"Kevin has a total of over 23 years of banking experience.  He started with Bank of the Sierra in 2001, and advanced from vice president and branch manager to executive vice president and Chief Banking Officer in a relatively short time frame," Holly noted.  "We have full confidence that Kevin's transition to his new role as President and Chief Operating Officer will be a smooth and natural progression thanks to his wealth of experience, familiarity with the Bank's culture, and proven management abilities," Holly concluded.

"I appreciate the confidence of the Board and Jim Holly as we transition into this new structure, and look forward to working with our executives and management team as we continue to focus on maximizing the Bank's potential," stated McPhaill.
