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."

Pittsfield Hallween Parade Cancelled, Trick or Treat is On

By Brittany Polito

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city's long-beloved Halloween parade is canceled for the second consecutive year due to COVID-19 but trick or treat is a go.

Recreation & Special Events Coordinator Becky Manship told the Parks Commission on Tuesday that unfortunately there will be no parade due to a rise in COVID-19 cases but local children will be able to go door to door for candy on Oct. 30 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

But trick or treat is still scheduled, and those who are interested in handing out candy are to leave their outside lights on during this time.

Manship said this is the planned date, but the looming virus could warrant a change of plans as with all events.

"It's too early to really tell what the numbers will be at that point so stay tuned on messaging down the road," she said.

Park and Open Space Program Manager James McGrath said it is really up to parents' discretion if they want their families to participate in trick or treat or not.

"It never has been mandatory to participate in trick or treating," He said. "We just want to make certain that the tradition can continue but parents can make good decisions and keep their children safe in their neighborhood."
