CÔTE SAINT-LUC, SEPTEMBER 11, 2006 - Côte Saint-Luc Mayor Anthony Housefather today announced the appointment of Angelo Marino as the new city Treasurer, effective September 25. He will report to Interim City Manager Ken Lerner.
 
For the last five years, Mr. Marino was the Director of Financial Resources for the Eastern Townships School Board. He was responsible for accounting/finance, school local taxation, payroll, and buildings & equipment, and oversaw a budget of $64 million. His responsibilities included collecting school taxes from more than 19,000 taxpayers each year and working with approximately 160 municipalities and towns.

Mr. Marino graduated from Concordia University in 1987 with a Bachelor of Commerce degree, major in Accounting and minor in Management Information Technologies. He earned a Certified General Accountant Designation in 1990. His career began in the private sector for Sun Life Assurance Company and Universal Reinsurance Technical Services. In 1992, he moved into the public education sector at the Protestant School Board of Greater Montreal as a Finance Officer responsible for the maintenance of the Board's annual operating budget. After several years, he was promoted to coordinator of accounting services, overseeing the day-to-day operations of the Board. In 1998, he became the assistant director of Financial Services for the new English Montreal School Board (EMSB). Overseeing the financial operations of the newly-created entity, he had the opportunity to learn the complete budget-building process and financial statement preparations for non-profit organizations.
 
“We are very fortunate to have found someone like Angelo Marino for this very important position,” said Anthony Housefather, Mayor of Côte Saint-Luc. “He brings into this position 20 years of relevant work experiences and an expertise in increasing efficiency with technology, and developing and implementing financial and operational internal controls.”
Councillor Dida Berku, who holds the finance portfolio, said the timing of Mr. Marino's hiring could not be better.
 
“We are just about to embark upon the process of building our 2007 budget,” Councillor Berku said. “I know that members of council, staff and the taxpayers will benefit from his vast experience.”
 
Said Mr. Marino: “I believe in lifelong learning and I look forward to the new challenges and opportunities as treasurer for the City of Côte Saint-Luc.”
 
Mr. Lerner welcomed Mr. Marino aboard, stating: "Angelo brings to the senior management team a skill set that will support our ambition to run the city in a corporate environment. His values are a direct fit with our senior management team."
