Flushing Financial Corp., the Lake Success company that owns Flushing Savings Bank, elected a new chairman of the board.
John E. Roe Sr. starts in that role Wednesday, replacing Gerard Tully Sr., who has been chairman of the bank for 30 years. He oversaw its conversion to a public company in 1994. He'll remain on the board.
Roe, who recently retired as chairman of the City Underwriting Agency, has been on Flushing's board since it went public.
"John's contributions throughout the years have proved invaluable," Tully said in a statement.

Flushing has $4.3 billion in assets and has 16 branches in Nassau and New York City.
