Leominster CU Names SVP O’Brien as CEO
John O’Brien has been promoted to president/CEO at the $613 million, 49,400-member Leominster Credit Union in Leominster, Mass.
Senior Vice President of Retail Carol Southworth had been serving as interim president/CEO since the departure of Paul Gilbody in January after six months on the job.
O’Brien joined LCU in 2007 as senior vice president of lending after working in operations, sales and planning positions at Household International and HSBC, LCU said.
“By selecting a candidate of John’s caliber from inside the credit union, not only did we find someone with great leadership and management skills, but one who knows the organization very well and who, as a member of the executive team, has helped establish its goals and strategic direction throughout the past five years,” LCU Board Chairman Anthony Gasbarro said in a statement.
