Brookline taps insiders to serve as co-presidents

Brookline Bancorp in Boston is shaking up several top executive posts.

The $8.6 billion-asset company said in a press release Monday that Paul Perrault, its CEO, has also become its chairman. He succeeded Joseph Slotnik, who will serve as Brookline’s lead director. 

Brookline also promoted two executives to serve as co-presidents, succeeding Perrault. 

Michael McCurdy had been the company’s general counsel and chief risk officer, while Carl Carlson had been chief financial and strategy officer. McCurdy will also become Brookline’s chief operating officer, overseeing units Brookline Bank and Bank Rhode Island. Carlson will remain CFO. 

“I’m delighted that the board … has voted to make these changes, the most significant of which is clearly Mike McCurdy’s and Carl Carlson’s elevation to company co-presidents,” Perrault said in the release.

“This will recognize them for their experience and dedicated service to the company and will also ensure that our customers and stockholders get the full benefit of their experience and counsel well into the future,” Perrault added. 

McCurdy joined Brookline in 2011, while Carlson has been at the company since 2014.
