Bruce Leighton had been serving as CEO/CFO since departure of Bernard McLaughlin earlier this year.
Bernard McLaughlin has been appointed as the new president/CEO of the $724 million Point Breeze Credit Union in Hunt Valley, Md.
Now in Maryland, McLaughlin most recently president/CEO of Members First CU in New Hampshire.
