Berkshire Money Management Hires Compliance Officer

Print Story | Email Story

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Money Management, a locally based investment advisory firm, has hired Jayne Bills, a veteran of Citigroup Treasury, as the firm's compliance officer.

Bills joins an already growing team of committed advisors and will be dealing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and all of its outside regulatory requirements and internal policies. She has the essential task of effectively communicating Berkshire Money Management's ethics principles and compliance regulations to the SEC and to BMM's client community.

"We are fortunate to have been able to lure Jayne away from New York City to our Berkshire-based company," said Berkshire Money Management CEO and Chief Investment Officer Allen Harris. "This area has so much to offer other young professionals, and Jayne has a lot to offer to us."



Bills attended Providence College in Rhode Island, where she met her husband Dan. She graduated in 2007 with a B.A. in quantitative economics. For a decade, the couple lived in the New York City area, "commuting, competing, and, at times, wondering if there just might be a different way of life." The arrival of their son, August, gave them the incentive to find out. It was a perfect match — the job, the "Shire" and their mutual interests — hiking, cycling, and antiquing.

"We are excited to call the Berkshires home and for our family to embrace all the wonderful things the region has to offer," Bills said. "I am so grateful to have the opportunity to join Berkshire Money Management, to be part of a company that operates with a great level of respect not only for their clients and employees, but also for their community."

Berkshires Beat: BNRC Upgrades Popular Trails for 2019 Summer Season

Trail facelifts

On Monday, June 10, state Rep. Smitty Pignatelli joined members of the Berkshire Natural Resources Council (BNRC) board of directors, volunteers, staff and nature trail enthusiasts to unveil a redesigned trailhead kiosk and enhanced on-trail signage at BNRC's flagship conservation reserve, Yokun Ridge South at Olivia's Overlook. Similar upgrades have also been completed at 16 other BNRC trail sites across Berkshire County. All 54 BNRC reserves are open to the public year-round from dawn to dusk, free of charge.

Each updated kiosk features a large map of the reserve and its trail system; notes on the natural, cultural, and ownership history of the protected lands; and suggested activities for each property.  Also available at the kiosks are free, newly revised paper trail maps for visitor use. Easier-to-read on-trail signage, mostly in the form of large brown signs with white letters, has also been installed on many trails. Among these are trails at The Boulders, a BNRC property used by many, which spans across parts of Dalton, Lanesborough and the City of Pittsfield in the center of Berkshire County.

"These kiosk and signage improvements, coupled with BNRC's new Berkshire Trails app, will help everyone explore the richness of the Berkshires' hiking trails and outdoor opportunities," said BNRC President Jenny Hansell. At Monday's unveiling ceremony, Pignatelli spoke to the crowd of the economic importance of conservation land and outdoor recreation opportunities in the Berkshires.

Established in 1967, the Berkshire Natural Resources Council’s mission is to protect and preserve the natural beauty and ecological integrity of the Berkshires for public benefit and enjoyment. There are 54 BNRC conservation reserves spread across Berkshire County, free to the public, open to everyone for non-motorized recreation, featuring over 55 miles of maintained trails.
