New Hampshire Community Loan Fund names new President/CEO

Concord - The New Hampshire Community Loan Fund Board of Directors is excited to announce the appointment of Steve Saltzman as President/CEO. He is only the second CEO in the Community Loan Fund’s 38-year history, succeeding Juliana Eades, who retired in June 2020. Saltzman will start in early April.

The Board conducted a thorough search process, in keeping with its succession plan. The process was supported by a consultant that specializes in the Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) field and, with a fully engaged Board, encompassed the CDFI field nationally and nonprofit leaders locally. 

“Thanks to Julie’s long tenure and John Hamilton’s skilled management over the last year, the Community Loan Fund is strong and vital,” said Betsy McNamara, Community Loan Fund Board Chair.

“Steve brings with him a dynamic sense of possibility,” added McNamara. “He has a track record of innovation while truly respecting an organization’s foundational strengths and culture. We are confident that he will build on the legacy of the Community Loan Fund’s work while bringing his national perspective and experience to the task.”

Saltzman’s experience ranges from leadership of multiple programs at one of the largest national CDFIs, Self-Help Credit Union, to remarkable and innovative, community-based, success as CEO at Charleston (S.C.) LDC, a smaller CDFI. Saltzman is looking forward to working with the Community Loan Fund because of its mission, deep local impact, and national reputation.

“I am honored to join the team at the NH Community Loan Fund,” said Saltzman. “The entire field of community development finance, now totaling 1,100 organizations, owes a great deal of intellectual debt to the pioneering work of the Community Loan Fund and its founding president, Julianna Eades. I look forward to working with the fund’s 50 team members, and loyal donors, and investors to carry on that proud tradition of innovation.”

Saltzman will have the benefit of working with a seasoned leadership team that has an average tenure of 20 years, and program directors steeped in the Community Loan Fund’s work, history, and culture. He also takes over an organization that is very financially strong, attributable to its staff and the deep involvement of its investors, donors, and community partners.

Saltzman will be introduced to the Community Loan Fund’s supporters and stakeholders at an upcoming online meeting.
