Mark Mancuso, a Johnson City businessman with more than 22 years of banking experience, has been named the new chief financial officer at Holston United Methodist Home for Children.
Mancuso succeeds David Ford, who recently retired after 30 years of service.
Mancuso, who also is vice president of support services, will start his new position this Monday, April 1.
"We are pleased to welcome Mark to our executive team," said Arthur S. Masker, president and CEO at Holston Home.
"He brings a wealth of experience from his years in the banking industry and the operation of his own business," Masker said in a news release.
"Mark has been active with non-profit organizations and civic activities, and we look forward to his involvement in the local community," Masker added.
Mancuso served as executive vice president of Consumer Banking at First Tennessee Bank and was a regional executive at TruPoint Bank.
He also founded Anderson Street Partners, a real estate investment and remodeling company in Northeast Tennessee that was recently expanded to include property maintenance and repair for professional office and residential properties.
Mancuso received a bachelor's degree in business from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, and holds several banking and lending certificates from the Graduate School of Banking of the South at LSU and the Tennessee School of Banking at Vanderbilt University in Nashville.
"I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the children and families of Holston Home, and look forward to being part of the Greeneville community," Mancuso said.
"It is by God's grace that this opportunity to serve was given, and it will be on His grace that I rely as I start this new journey at Holston Home, where we provide hope and healing to children and their families."
ACTIVE CIVIC LEADER
Mancuso also has served in leadership roles for several civic and community organizations, including as area president of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in Johnson City; division chair of United Way in Washington County; board member and treasurer for the Appalachian Girl Scout Council; and president and board member of the Inter-Faith Hospitality Network, to name just a few.
"As a Christian organization, it is essential that we find a person who blends talent with a mind for ministry," said Bradley S. Williams, chief operating officer and incoming chief executive officer upon Masker's retirement in September of this year.
"Mark loves the Lord and has been successful in managing the finances and operations for various companies.
"We are confident that Mark will be a strong member of our leadership team going forward," Williams said in the news release.
Founded in 1895, Holston Home has family service centers in Greeneville, Johnson City, Knoxville, Chattanooga and Bristol, Va.
The non-profit organization serves approximately 400 children and families each day.
