HarborOne Bancorp in Brockton, Mass., has lined up its next CEO.
The $4.5 billion-asset company said in a press release Thursday that James Blake will retire, effective May 18. Joseph Casey, the company’s president and chief operating officer, will succeed Casey.
Blake and Casey will remain on the company’s board.
Blake joined HarborOne Bank – then known as Brockton Credit Union – in 1993. He has been the CEO since 1995, overseeing the credit union’s conversion to a bank in 2013. HarborOne had its second-step conversion in 2019.
Casey, who joined the bank in 2004, became president and COO in February 2017.
“My fellow directors and I are pleased that Joe Casey will be stepping in,” Michael Sullivan, HarborOne’s chairman, said in the release. “Joe understands and embodies the mission, culture and values that have helped drive HarborOne … over more than a century of service, growth and diversification.”
