The New Hampshire Community Loan Fund’s board of drectors appointed Steve Saltzman as its new president and CEO. He is only the second to serve in that position in the Community Loan Fund’s 38-year history, succeeding Juliana Eades, who retired last June. Saltzman will start in early April.
According to a statement from Board Chair Betsy McNamara, Saltzman brings a dynamic sense of possibility. He has a record of innovation while truly respecting an organization’s foundational strengths and culture. McNamara said, "We are confident that he will build on the legacy of the Community Loan Fund’s work while bringing his national perspective and experience to the task."
Saltzman’s experience ranges from leadership of multiple programs at one of the largest national c ommunity development financial institutions (CDFIs), Self-Help Credit Union, to innovative, community-based initiatives as CEO of Charleston (S.C.) LDC, a smaller CDFI. Saltzman said he is looking forward to working with the Community Loan Fund because of its mission, local impact, and national reputation.
