DALTON, Mass. — Berkshire Money Management promoted Natalie Wheeler to Chief Operating Officer
Natalie Wheeler, who joined the firm at the very beginning of 2020 as Operations Manager, is now the Chief Operating Officer (COO).
"As experienced as she was, I didn’t have a position for Natalie when she came on board – but I hire smart people when I can," said CEO and founder Allen Harris. "Natalie is the iPhone of money management, but with a better battery – I didn’t know we needed her until we had her."
Upon joining Berkshire Money Management Wheeler streamlined operations, took on all human resources needs and challenges, updated the firm’s policies and procedures, and headed up all compliance-related duties.

Dalton Fire Chief Hired But Name Will Be Released at Later Date

By Sabrina DammsiBerkshires Staff
DALTON, Mass.—After a long search the Dalton Fire District has hired its new fire chief. 
"The district has gone through an exhaustive search looking for a new chief to replace Jim Peltier that was released in mid-summer. We feel that the new chief will bring the department together," Fire District Chair James Driscoll said. 
However, for now, the name of the new chief is being withheld because the district first wants to communicate with department staff before announcing it to the public, said Driscoll.
The district combed through 15 applications for the position and finally landed on one that they felt was a good fit. 
"We feel he has a lot of common sense and knowledge in the fire department and in the running of the fire department and hopefully everything will work out from this point forward," Driscoll said.
Driscoll said the district does plan to hold a swearing-in ceremony the first week of February. The exact date has yet to be determined. 
Retired Pittsfield Fire Chief Robert Czerwinski , who agreed agreed to act as interim chief until a new one could be found, will remain with the department until the new chief takes over.
