GERRY – The Heritage Ministries Board of Directors announced Tuesday that Lisa Haglund has been named as the interim CEO for the company, replacing the previous CEO David Smeltzer.
Officials with the company were not at liberty to explain specifically why Smeltzer left his position. WNYNewsNow has reached out to set up an interview with Haglund in the near future.
Haglund began her career with Northwest Bank where she worked for over twenty years, prior to joining the Heritage organization.
Haglund attended Alfred State College as well as the Pennsylvania Bankers Association Advanced School of Banking at Penn State. She has also been an active member of her community, with involvement ranging from Chautauqua Leadership Network to the St. Susan Center.
“It is this combination of business acumen, integrity, and Christian values that made her the obvious selection as we take next steps in an exciting future for Heritage,” Heritage Board of Directors shared.
Heritage Ministries was founded in 1886 and has grown from its original campus in Gerry, to six locations in New York with additional affiliations across the United States.
