Sharp Appointed to University Position
Larry Sharp, fired by the NCUA two weeks ago after his credit union was seized June 25, already has a new job.
Sharp was named to a two-year appointment as vice president for university advancement at California State University San Bernardino, effective Sept. 1.
Sharp will oversee CSUSB's University Advancement Division, which includes the offices of alumni affairs, development and public affairs.
"While recent developments at Arrowhead Credit Union, which grew out of the deep recession that severely damaged the Inland Empire's economy, have been very unfortunate, the university will benefit extraordinarily by the skills and perspectives that Larry has developed over his outstanding career," said Albert Karnig, president of the school in a release.
Sharp received his M.B.A. at CSUSB, and has served on various campus boards. He was presented an honorary doctorate of humane letters in 2008, and was the recipient of the university's Arrowhead Distinguished Executive Officer Award in 1998. He also was a commencement speaker in 2004."I'm honored to be joining the staff of California State University, San Bernardino," Sharp said. "The university is one of the most important institutions in the Inland Empire and essential to the region's growth and success. I look forward to helping the university reach its vision for the future."
