The new year has brought leadership changes at Campbell Employees Federal Credit Union in Cherry Hill, N.J.
After some 30 years of service at the credit union, longtime president/CEO Martin Banecker will retire effective Jan. 15. Current Vice President of Finance David Ardire has been tapped to succeed Banecker as CEO.
Under Banecker’s leadership the credit union has grown from $18 million in assets to about $153 million, and membership now is at more than 12,900. He has also been credited with several initiatives ranging from offering checking accounts to ATM card programs.
Ardire began his career at Campbell Employees FCU in 1979 as an accountant/systems manager. He left to pursue various financial roles at Campbell Soup Co. and prior to returning to the credit union was vice president of finance at Piramal Glass USA.
During some 25 years he remained active as a volunteer with the credit union, serving on the audit committee and then as a board member. Ardire returned to the credit union in 2011 as vice president finance.
