Maine Credit Union League hires permanent president

The Maine Credit Union League finally has a permanent president.

The trade group said in a press release that Elise Baldacci will take on the role on June 3. She will succeed Cris Wescott, who has served as interim president since Todd Mason’s left the group last June.

Baldacci previously served as deputy chief of staff for Gov. Janet Mills.

“After conducting a thorough search for our industry’s next leader, Elise’s qualifications, including her experience advocating for credit unions, stood above the rest,” David Desjardins, the league’s chairman and CEO of Acadia Federal Credit Union, said in the release.

Baldacci “brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to this role, along with a deep commitment to carrying out the credit union ‘people helping people’ philosophy,” Desjardins added. “Her familiarity with both the League and the credit union movement makes her well-positioned to advance the interests of Maine credit unions, now and in the future.”
