Banco de Sabadell SA is set to name Cesar Gonzalez-Bueno as chief executive officer, replacing Jaime Guardiola, as the Spanish lender struggles to chart a path forward after short-lived talks on a combination with larger rival Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria SA.

Guardiola’s departure will be announced as soon as this week, with his successor set to be named shortly after, according to people with knowledge of the matter, who asked not to be identified because the information is confidential.
