RADNOR, PA--(Marketwire - Jul 14, 2011) - The Haverford Trust Company, a private wealth management firm, announced today the appointment of Diego F. Calderin to its Board of Directors. Calderin has more than 20 years of experience within the business technology industry, highlighted by winning the 2005 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award in Emerging Business for the Greater Philadelphia and Central Pennsylvania region.

"For many years, we've been impressed by Diego's professional and personal accomplishments. Specifically, we know Diego's intimate knowledge of entrepreneurs will benefit our organization and our clients greatly," said Joseph J. McLaughlin, Jr., Chairman and CEO of Haverford Trust. "Entrepreneurs continue to be a key constituent of Haverford's and Diego will help us further improve our services to these individuals."

Calderin is co-Founder and President of Anexinet Corporation, an award-winning systems integrator and technology management company. Previously, Calderin served as Vice President and Managing Director at Actium / Modis, where he managed $25 million in regional business units for professional technology services and vendor-certified education for Greater Philadelphia, New Jersey and Delaware.

In addition to his professional responsibilities, Calderin supports various organizations.
