07 Mar LEAP Welcomes Eaton Federal Savings Bank to Board of Directors
LANSING, Mich. – After welcoming seven new members to the LEAP Board of Directors in 2016, LEAP announced today that Eaton Federal Savings Bank will join LEAP’s Board for the 2016 year. Led by president, Timothy Jewell, Eaton Federal Savings Bank was founded in Charlotte in 1937 as Charlotte Federal Savings and Loan Association to provide local families with a safe place to invest their savings and to finance the purchase or construction of a home.
“Eaton Federal is thrilled to partner with LEAP to help do our part to insure the vibrancy and economic growth of the region. Like any business, a bank can only be as successful as the communities it serves and LEAP’s contributions have been, and will continue to be, critical to the success of the greater Lansing area. Eaton Federal has always been deeply invested in its communities and our partnership with LEAP allows us to make that investment on a regional scale,” said Timothy Jewell.
Eaton Federal Savings Bank joins new members, Ayers Basement Systems, The Dart Bank, Gillespie Group, MacKenzie Companies, Robert W. Baird & Co., T.A. Forsberg Development, and Windsor Charter Township to the LEAP Board, which were announced earlier this year.
“LEAP is happy to welcome Eaton Federal Savings Bank to join the other investor members of LEAP’s Board. LEAP’s Board of Directors is incredibly active and leads the region’s economic development efforts through investment in the LEAP organization. The work LEAP does is only possible through the investment of these member companies and organizations,” said Bob Trezise, President and CEO of LEAP. “Since 2012, LEAP projects by the private sector have created $937M in investment and over 3,800 jobs.”
