AFSAEF’s Casserly Retires

David Casserly, the AFSA Education Foundation [AFSAEF] Director of MoneySKILL®, after more than 20 years in the financial literacy arena, has decided to retire. Overall, his career has been varied but focused in large part on communications. He always excelled as a writer-editor, and it is there that he found the greatest satisfaction.

Casserly worked in a variety of positions with a number of companies in a career marked by commitment to financial literacy and education. Along the way, he worked in corporate communications for the National Association of Securities Dealers, now known as FINRA, and as speechwriter for Chairman of the Board Frank Zarb.

He spent time with a number of not-for-profit organizations, including the United Way. In 2002, he started with the Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy, where he worked in every aspect of the organization, from writing to organizing events.

In 2007, Casserly began making MoneySKILL presentations to teacher groups for AFSAEF. When he retired from Jump$tart, was asked to join AFSAEF to help market the financial literacy program. In his time with AFSA, he began a newsletter for teachers and AFSA members, opened new social media outlets for MoneySKILL and assisted in the development of a new website for the foundation and the creation of a new strategic plan.
