Carver Bancorp in New York has named a new chief lending officer and a new president of its community development unit.

The $644 million-asset Carver said in a press release Tuesday that it had promoted Blondel Pinnock to chief lending officer. Previously, Pinnock had been president of a Carver unit that handles its New Markets Tax Credit program and other community development lending.

Takisia Whites has succeeded Pinnock at Carver Community Development. Whites also retains her role as the leader of the lending team for nonprofits.

Carver's thrift, Carver Federal Savings Bank, on Nov. 4 had its cease-and-desist order lifted by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. The February 2011 order had required Carver to raise capital and improve credit quality.
