Allfirst Financial Inc. said yesterday that it has named an official of its Irish parent company as its executive vice president and chief financial officer.

Maurice Crowley, the head of group investor relations at Allied Irish Banks PLC in Dublin, will be responsible for all financial areas of the Baltimore company, including taxes, planning and cost management. He will be a member of Allfirst Financial's executive finance committee.

Crowley also will head strategic planning and provide support in devising strategy to Frank P. Bramble, Allfirst Financial's chairman and chief executive officer of Allied Irish Banks' U.S. division. Crowley will join Allfirst in mid-April.

"I am delighted that I was able to find this kind of talent from within the group," said Susan C. Keating, Allfirst Financial's president and chief executive officer. "He is a professional with very diverse experience that clearly complements the executive team here at Allfirst."

Crowley, who began his career with Allied Irish Banks in 1986, has worked in the company's venture capital group and in strategic planning and electronic banking. He is a graduate of University College in Dublin and received a master of science degree in business administration from Trinity College, also in Dublin.

Allfirst's previous chief financial officer, Jerome W. Evans, took early retirement in May.

The company offers investment, trust and commercial insurance services, along with banking services, through Allfirst Bank.
