Von Haden retired on Friday, June 7.  He was hired at Ladysmith Federal in October 2002 as an accountant and compliance officer. In September 2003 he was promoted to Vice President. In January 2010 he was promoted to President/CEO.  

“I am most proud of the people I have had the pleasure working with here at Ladysmith Federal,” explains Von Haden.
