Bert Hash Retires in June
Bert Hash Jr. plans to retire in June after 17 years as president/CEO of the $1.3 billion MECU of Baltimore, the credit union announced April 14.
Hash will be succeeded by Gary J. Martin, the 106,600-member credit union's SVP and chief lending officer. Martin joined MECU in 1972 as a loan officer.
“The board had a number of specific qualities they wanted in the new CEO,” said Herman Williams Jr., board chairman at MECU. “We were looking for vision and continued implementation of new technology affecting financial services, but of utmost importance to the entire board was a commitment to MECU's culture of giving back to the community.”
“The board felt that Gary Martin brought together all these qualities,” Williams said in the MECU announcement.
