Berkshire Bank CEO Richard Marotta has left the lender, effective immediately, to “pursue new opportunities,” the company said Monday, the second time in less than two years that the bank’s chief executive has resigned abruptly from the company.

Sean Gray, currently president and chief operating officer of the bank (NYSE: BHLB), will replace Marotta on an acting basis, Berkshire said in a statement Monday. The bank will kick off a CEO search process that will include Gray as a candidate.
