Troubled Carver Bancorp has named a new chief executive.

Deborah C. Wright is to take over as president and CEO of the New York thrift holding company June 1. She now is president of the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Development Corp.

Ms. Wright is to fill the post vacated by Thomas L. Clark Jr., who was fired in January. Carver, the nation's largest minority-owned financial institution, with $420 million of assets, has been fighting an unsolicited takeover bid by Boston Bank of Commerce since it reported a $5.7 million loss for the quarter ended Dec. 31.
