Shore Community Bank in Toms River, N.J., has called on some old friends to lead the board of directors.

The $239 million-asset bank said in a press release Wednesday that Howard Butensky was appointed chairman. Butensky in 1996 founded Shore with David Rosen, who has been appointed vice chairman. Both men have been board members since the bank's founding.

Butensky succeeds the retiring Jerry Boisseau, who had led the board since 2012 and will be chairman emeritus.

Butensky is a practicing attorney in Tuckerton, N.J., and associate counsel to the New Jersey Zoning and Planning Officials, a nonprofit organization of citizen planners and residents appointed to local planning and zoning boards; he is also a former attorney for the Borough of Tuckerton and Toms River Township. Rosen is president and owner of Good Friend Electrical Supplies in Toms River and serves as a trustee for a number of organizations, including the Ocean County College Foundation.
