Chevy Chase Savings Bank of Maryland has named Ron Averett senior vice president of its credit card division.

Mr. Averett, who joined Chevy Chase in March from Advanta Corp., succeeded Dennis C. Moroney, who resigned last fall.

Mr. Averett had managed credit card operations, including customer service and item processing. He did not return telephone calls, and Chevy Chase officials would not comment other than to confirm his appointment.

Chevy Chase is the 19th-largest credit card issuer, according to The Nilson Report, with $5.1 billion of receivables. Its cards include a cobranded Visa with Giant supermarkets and the Rolling Stones Visa and MasterCard cards.
