WILMINGTON, Del., Jan. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WSFS Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:WSFS), the parent company of WSFS Bank, today announced that they are resuming their search for a new Chief Financial Officer. Kevin L. Thompson, who was recently named Chief Financial Officer, has decided to remain with his family in Utah and will not be joining the company.
