Longtime credit union leader Al Frosolone of Niagara’s Choice FCU, a past New York Credit Union Association board chairman, has retired. His last day with the credit union was Dec. 30.
Frosolone served for nearly 30 years in a leadership capacity at the Niagara Falls-based credit union, where, as CEO, he grew the credit union from $23 million in assets to more than $180 million.
He was the Association board chairman from 2009-2011, serving 16 years total on the Association’s board.
Frosolone, who received the Association’s Professional of the Year award in 1997, also served on the boards of the New York Credit Union Foundation, OwnersChoice Funding and UsNet, as well as on many Association committees.
“For the past three decades, Al has been a tremendous credit union leader who has made invaluable contributions to Western New York and our statewide movement,” said Association President/CEO William J. Mellin. “While it’s difficult to see someone of Al’s stature go, his retirement is certainly well-deserved, and his contributions to our movement will be evident for years to come. I wish Al a very happy and healthy retirement.”
Dan Keleher has been appointed by the Niagara’s Choice FCU board of directors to serve as the credit union’s new CEO. Keleher previously served as the credit union’s executive vice president. Prior to that, Keleher worked for nearly a decade at SEFCU, where he served in various capacities.
