We are excited to welcome Andrea to the Naveo team! We’re confident that Andrea’s experience, energy, vision and leadership will allow Naveo to continue being a key player in our community, providing exceptional member experiences and building upon partnerships that benefit the communities and neighborhoods we serve,” commented Leontina Mancini, Chairperson of the Board of Directors at Naveo. “On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Albert Pinho for his leadership and commitment for serving as Interim CEO over the past 6 months. We are grateful for his dedication.

I am thrilled to work with Naveo’s talented team and to immerse myself in the mission of the credit union. There is nothing more rewarding than helping to make a positive impact on people’s lives. I look forward to leading an organization that exemplifies those values every day,” commented White.
