Dime Bancorp has hired Judson H. Croom from CTX Mortgage Co. to succeed Richard A. Mirro as president of its home loan unit, North American Mortgage Co.
Mr. Croom, 48, will report to Mr. Mirro, who has been promoted to chairman and chief executive officer of North American. Mr. Croom was president and chief executive of CTX, a subsidiary of the Dallas home builder Centex Corp.
Fred B. Koons, former chairman and CEO of North American, was named senior executive adviser to the Dime unit. Earlier this year Mr. Koons was elected to Dime's board.
Mr. Koons, 54, is gradually shedding his duties at Dime, a spokesman for the bank said. That was the plan ever since Mr. Koons joined Dime in 1996, the spokesman said.
John L. Matthews, 55, was named president and CEO of CTX. He had been executive vice president in charge of retail production.
