New VP of Finance Joins NECC’s Leadership Team
After a nationwide search, Northern Essex Community College has hired a new vice president of finance, the chief financial officer of the college.
David Gingerella of Westerly, RI, who has 19 years of experience in higher education, most recently as senior director of business operations at Yale University, will relocate to the area and begin at the college on May 18.
A member of the president’s cabinet, the vice president of finance is responsible for providing leadership and collaborative service in finance, budgeting, purchasing, accounting and report systems, and other areas.
Prior to spending eight years at Yale, Gingerella worked for close to a decade at Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI, serving in a variety of roles including university bursar, director of student services, university registrar, dean of student finance and records, and dean of continuing education. He also taught at Roger Williams’ Gabelli School of Business.
In announcing Gingerella’s selection, Lane Glenn, Northern Essex’s vice president of academic affairs, said “David has strong financial credentials and a wide background in higher education. His collaborative nature and very clear commitment to serving students make him a wonderful addition to the NECC community.”
