Douglas Cahill

Salisbury Bank and Trust Co. recently announced the hiring of a new employee and the promotion of another.

Douglas Cahill has joined SBT as director of human resources. Cahill, who will oversee the human resources management of 120 employees, assumed his new responsibilities at SBT’s Lakeville headquarters on Aug. 1.

Cahill has an extensive background in human resources, including management positions at Dobson Corp. (Cellular One) in Lagrangeville, N.Y.; St. Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie; and Sharon Hospital. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Connecticut and a certificate in human resources management from Marist College. He is designated as a PHR, or Professional in Human Resources, by the Society for Human Resources Management.

“The acquisition of Canaan National Bank and the overall growth of SBT in the past few years dictated that we hire a human resources professional to take over recruitment, compensation and benefits, employee relations, and training and to manage increasingly complex compliance records and reports,” said John Perotti, chairman and chief executive officer of the bank. “We are very pleased to have found that the professional we were looking for is a local person who grew up in the Northwest Corner.”

Cahill and his wife JoAnn live in Sharon.

Nancy Missaggia has been named manager of the bank’s newest branch in Sheffield, Mass. The branch, SBT’s sixth office, opened in March of this year.

Missaggia has been with SBT for four years, having been head teller at the bank’s Lakeville headquarters and, most recently, a customer service specialist. She came to SBT with 10 years of experience with Berkshire County banks, including serving as an assistant branch manager. In 2001, after just nine months on the job, she was named SBT’s Employee of the Quarter.

A native of Great Barrington, Mass., Missaggia and her husband Peter are the parents of a young son and daughter.
