Del-One FCU snags veteran financial chief as next CEO
Ron Baron has been named as president and CEO of Del-One Federal Credit Union in Dover, Del.
Baron had been serving in those roles on an interim basis since April, the $480 million-asset credit union said Friday. He had been the institution’s chief financial officer since June 2018. The prior CEO had taken another job in North Carolina, a credit union spokeswoman said.
Before joining Del-One, Baron was CFO for Azura Credit Union in Topeka, Kan., and two publicly-traded community banks in Virginia.
He also previously served as treasurer at Benjamin Franklin Bancorp in Franklin, Mass., and in financial management roles at Bay Loan and Investment Bank and Bank of New England-Old Colony. Baron also had a stint as a credit officer at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
“The Del-One board of directors is pleased that Ron has accepted the position of president [and] CEO and we look forward to working together on behalf of over 68,000 members (and growing) of Del-One” Nancy J. Shevock, chairman of Del-One, said in a press release. “Our 11 convenient locations throughout the state of Delaware represent our commitment to serving our members and we know that under Ron’s leadership we will continue our tradition of service of excellence. The staff of Del-One has been extremely gracious in welcoming Ron as their new leader.”
