Local Government Federal Credit Union (LGFCU) proudly announces the appointment of David Dear to its Board of Directors. Dear, recently retired as the Cleveland County Manager, was appointed to fill the seat left vacant by the retirement of Director Emeritus Jack Scoville.
Dear, who resides in Shelby, N.C., worked for Cleveland County for 34 years, the last eight as county manager. He is credited with bringing industry and jobs to the area despite a struggling economy. He hasbeen an LGFCU member since 1988, serving on their volunteer Advisory Council since 2009. He is also one of the nominees the Board selected for appointment for the 2012-15 term. This election will take place at the credit union’s annual meeting on April 27.
“With such experience and leadership in North Carolina local government, we are very pleased to have David join our Board,” said LGFCU President Maurice Smith. “He is part of a great team that has demonstrated its ability to move us forward through tough financial times, all while keeping the best interests of the credit union’s members in mind.”
