Former Rome Savings Bank executive David C. Nolan will be the new city treasurer when Mayor-elect Joseph R. Fusco Jr. takes office in January, Fusco confirmed today. He has also named his confidential secretary.

Nolan, age 58, 107 W. Cedar St., was let go from the bank as part of the recent merger with Berkshire Bank. His last titles were executive vice president and chief financial officer. He worked there for about 27 years. Before that, Nolan worked for his father’s company, Nolan Jampol Corp., which made newspaper industry equipment for mail room handling.

Fusco, who worked at Nolan Jampol from 1980 to 1982 as a welder, assembler and machinist assistant, said he chosen Nolan because he is a "sharp guy, very personable."

When asked why he took Fusco’s offer, Nolan said: "How could I not? It’s a position comparable to what I did at Rome Savings. It’s an exciting, challenging opportunity. I’m very committed to the City of Rome."

Fusco’s mayoral confidential secretary will be Kathleen Perry. Currently an advertising representative for the Rome Sentinel Co., Perry will serve a bigger role than is traditional, Fusco said. "She brings a great deal of organizational skills and marketing and people skills. I’m looking forward to her doing more than just secretarial work. I’m looking forward to her serving as my mayoral assistant too."
