The board of directors of Members 1st Federal Credit Union Thursday unanimously named George Nahodil to the post of president and CEO.
Nahodil has served in the capacity of acting president/CEO since the death of former President/CEO Bob Marquette on July 2. Nahodil was previously executive vice president in charge of retail delivery, public relations and marketing since joining the credit union in 2001.
"I'm honored, and I'm grateful to the board for the opportunity to lead this exceptional organization of creative, dedicated and talented professionals," Nahodil said. "Members 1st has long exemplified the credit union philosophy of people helping people — namely to improve the quality of our members' lives by providing personalized products and services to turn their financial dreams into realities. This is a terrific opportunity that any leader would welcome."
“George’s leadership ability, experience and grasp of both the existing opportunities and challenges made him the clear choice to lead the organization into the future,” John Devlin, Members 1st chairman of the board, said in a news release from the credit union. “George has all the skills necessary — strategic vision, management, and a command of the changing environment of the financial services industry.”
Nahodil is a graduate of Clarion University of Pennsylvania and has an MBA from the University of Connecticut. Before coming to Members 1st, he served as vice president of sales at TransUnion/Credit Plus Solutions Group and was first deputy comptroller of Mount Vernon, New York.
Nahodil is a founding member of the Harrisburg Hilton-Hill Society, committee chair for the Central Penn College MBA Program and is a board member for the Harrisburg Regional Chamber of Commerce. He lives in Palmyra with his wife Kelley of 29 years, and has two adult sons and one granddaughter.
