Carver Bancorp in New York has named Christina Maier its chief financial officer.

Maier succeeds David Toner, who resigned from the $754 million-asset bank last month to pursue other opportunities, according to a Thursday news release. Maier's appointment to the company and to Carver Federal Savings Bank took effect Thursday.

Previously, Maier worked at the $641 million-asset Patriot National Bancorp in Stamford, Conn., where she had been CFO since 2013. Before that she worked at Provident New York Bancorp in Montebello, N.Y.

Carver has been trying to rebound after struggles following the financial crisis. Last year it brought on a new chief executive, Michael Pugh, and it has focused on its mobile and online banking platforms.

Carver, a designated community development financial institution, operates nine branches in New York, serving residents and businesses in communities with limited access to mainstream financial services.
