Companies on the Move: Edge Consultancy
Edge Consultancy LLC, a new strategic consulting firm aimed at community banks and credit unions, has added several new consultants and leadership positions, including CEO Kirk Kordeleski, former CEO at Bethpage Credit Union. To complement Kordeleski’s credit union background, Edge appointed Joe Dugan, former executive vice president at Canandaigua National Bank, a community bank in the western New York Finger Lakes region, as the president of the company. Carlos Rodriguez, a 30-year industry veteran, rounds out the team, acting as chief operating officer.
In addition, noted industry veteran and author Louis Hernandez Jr., through his equity firm Black Dragon Capital, is Edge’s founding lead investor. Raju Shivdasani, former CEO of Harland Financial Services, Inc. (now part of D&H), will function in an advisory capacity, too, while Bill Dalton, former executive director of HSBC Holdings PLC, will serve as the group’s chairman.
Edge says it already has about a dozen other consultants onboard and expects to grow substantially over the coming months.
