“My time at Clearview has been the highlight of my career,” Brennan said.

Board chairman Robert Farrell commented that “under Mark’s leadership, he piloted the membership through a change in charter and name, and moved Clearview to become a billion dollar credit union.”

Celaschi first joined Clearview in 2008 as vice president of lending. In 2012, he was promoted to senior vice president of operations and lending. Prior to his tenure at Clearview, Celaschi was the president and CEO of Frick Tri-County Federal Credit Union (now an $83 million institution based in Uniontown, Pa.)

Celaschi also spent 14 years with the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association.
