HIGHSTOWN, N.J. (11/26/13)--Campbell Employees FCU President/CEO David Ardire was appointed Thursday to the New Jersey Credit Union League's board of directors (The Daily Exchange Nov. 22).
The appointment came after a board meeting that also saw XCEL FCU President/CEO Linda McFadden voted interim vice chair.
"We are excited to welcome David Ardire to the board and look forward to his active involvement," said NJCUL Chairman Lou Vetere. "His experience at Campbell Employees FCU will prove valuable in representing New Jersey credit unions as he serves on the NJCUL board."
Ardire started at the credit union in 1979 as an accountant and systems manager. Although he left it to work for Campbell Soup Company and Piramal Glass--USA, Ardire remained a member of its audit committee and board of directors. He became Campbell Employees FCU vice president of finance in 2011 and was named president/CEO in January.
McFadden--serving as a replacement for the vice chair role vacated by Ray Del Nero of Merck Employees FCU--will serve in that capacity until the January board meeting where all table officers are elected for 2014.
Campbell Employees FCU is based in Cherry Hill, N.J. ; XCEL FCU, in Bloomfield; and Merck Employees FCU, in Rahway.
