He will provide guidance to the staff of the organization as Northern Savings puts in its search for a permanent CEO shortly, no timeline of his service at the head of the company was outlined with the announcement.

Mr. Delaney will also be assisting the Northern Savings Board to implement its new direction for the institution. The Board recently reviewed the strategic direction of the financial services institution and has developed a pair of new guiding statements that represent the Credit Union's focus.
