Jax Federal Credit Union announced April 6 its board appointed John Servos as the credit union’s CEO and president.

Servos joined April 1 after 22 years with Neighbors Credit Union in St. Louis where he was CEO for more than 12 years. Its assets grew from $192 million to $467 million during that time.

He also was chief financial officer for nine years and vice president of compliance and audit services for one year.

Mary Svoboda, who was interim president and CEO at Jax Federal Credit Union since March 2020, has returned to her previous dual roles of chief operating officer and chief lending officer.

Charles McLeod Jr., Jax Federal Credit Union chairman, said the organization looked forward to Servos “helping guide our 86-year-old credit union through its next phase of growth.

He also thanked Svoboda for  “navigating through the pandemic challenges of the past year.”

Jacksonville-based Jax Federal Credit Union worked with the DDJ Myers search firm to complete a national search that began in September.

Established in 1935, Jax Federal Credit Union has more than 39,000 members in Baker, Clay, Duval Nassau and St. Johns counties.
