Norwood Financial (NWFL) in Honesdale, Pa., has added to the management team of its bank.

James Burke has joined the $696 million-asset Wayne Bank as chief lending officer; John Carmody was promoted to chief credit officer, the company said Thursday. The company could not immediately be reached for details on Burke’s hiring or whom he and Carmody succeeded in their new roles.

"With over 20 years of corporate banking experience in the local area, [Burke] brings depth and experience to complement Wayne Bank's management," Lewis Critelli, president and chief executive of Wayne Bank, said in a press release.  Burke "will be responsible for leading the commercial lending team charged with cultivating and maintaining business relationships within the bank's service area."

Carmody, 43, had been Wayne Bank's senior loan officer and head of commercial banking since early 2012, according to Norwood's latest proxy filing. He joined the bank in 2001.

Norwood bought North Penn Bancorp in Scranton, Pa., two years ago. It has 16 branches in Pennsylvania, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
