Oregon Statutes - Chapter 707 - Organization to Conduct Banking Business; Stockholders, Directors and Officers - Section 707.700 - Selection and control of officers by directors; effect of removal of officers.

(1) After a charter has been issued to a banking institution, the board of directors shall elect a chief executive officer who shall also be a director, a president who also may be the chief executive officer, at least one vice president, and a cashier or secretary, and may appoint such other officers and employees as the board of directors considers necessary or appropriate.

(2) The board of directors may define the duties, fix the compensation, dismiss, fill vacancies and require bonds or irrevocable letters of credit for the faithful performance of the duties of the employees and officers of the banking institution.

(3) In the event the board dismisses an officer, the officer shall no longer serve as a director.

(4) Any officer or agent elected or appointed by the board of directors may be removed by the board of directors whenever, in its judgment, the best interests of the banking institution will be served thereby, but such removal shall be without prejudice to the contract rights, if any, of the person so removed. Election or appointment of an officer or agent shall not of itself create contract rights. [Amended by 1973 c.797 §92; 1983 c.37 §6; 1985 c.786 §32; 1989 c.324 §41; 1991 c.331 §110; 1997 c.631 §99]
