Clifton, N.J.-based Clifton Savings Bancorp (NASDAQ: CSBK ) got a new CEO this evening.
On Wednesday after close of trading, Clinton announced that both its own chairman and chief executive officer, John A. Celentano, Jr., and the president and CEO of the Clifton Savings Bank (for which it is the holding company), Walter Celuch, have decided to retire at the end of this year. Celuch is also president of the holding company.
Upon both men's retirement on December 31, the company will bring in Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP Chairman Paul M. Aguggia to become its chairman, CEO, and president.
