Ledyard Welcomes New President

Hannover-based Ledyard National Bank has a new president and chief banking officer. 

Ledyard Financial Group Inc., the holding company for Ledyard National Bank, announced earlier this month that Josephine Moran has joined the company as the president and chief banking officer. She reports directly to Ledyard CEO Kathy Underwood.  

Moran will oversee branch banking and product development, as well as bank-wide operations, IT, human resources and compliance. She will also be a member of the bank’s executive committee.  

Most recently, Moran was executive vice president, chief of corporate services and consumer lending officer at Provident Bank, and has spent 20 years in the financial services industry.  

“I’m looking forward to working closely with Josephine, as her knowledge, expertise and experience will add a strong, new dimension to our organization and its ability to grow,” Underwood said in a statement. “Josephine’s decision to join us is testimony to Ledyard’s past performance and future prospects. Her extensive experience across all aspects of the banking space will complement the exceptional executive team already in place.”  

Moran holds an executive MBA from the University of New Haven as well as a master’s degree in finance and financial services. Additionally, Josephine recently joined the NH Bankers Association’s Legislation Committee.
