The $380 million, 46,000-member Connex Credit Union in New Haven, Conn., has named Frank Mancini as its next president/CEO.
Mancini has been with Connex since 2003 as chief financial officer. He succeeds the retiring John Edwards, who had been at the helm of the Connecticut credit union for 34 years. The appointment was effective Nov. 1.
“With his extensive experience and his proven dedication to Connex Credit Union, Frank will be a strong leader as the credit union continues to grow and reach out to more members within the communities we serve,” said Fred Heimann, the credit union’s board chairman.
“John took us from a credit union focused on just a single employer in the New Haven area to what is today a $380 million community-based institution serving over 45,000 members in three counties. His contributions to Connex are greatly appreciated by me and our entire board,” Heimann said of Edwards.
Connex CU was chartered in 1940 to serve Southern New England Telephone employees and their families in the New Haven area. It changed its name in 2003 after it won a state community charter to serve anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in New Haven, Hartford or Middlesex counties.
