HARTFORD, CONN. (JUNE 22, 2016) - Today, Mayor Luke Bronin formally nominated Bonnie Malley to serve as the City of Hartford’s new Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Darrell Hill, to take on a new role as the City’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO).  Pending approval by the Court of Common Council, both Malley and Hill will serve in acting capacities beginning July 5th.
“I’m thrilled to make these announcements today,” said Mayor Bronin. “Bonnie and Darrell both bring tremendous talent and experience and have already been important members of our team, and I will be asking a lot from both of them as we work to get Hartford’s house in order.  I know that they both believe deeply in Hartford and in Hartford's future, and share my commitment to addressing our challenges openly and directly."

Before being nominated by Mayor Bronin to become the City’s new COO, Ms. Malley served as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of The Phoenix Companies, Inc. In this position. Ms. Malley was responsible for all financial management and oversight as well as investor relations.
Before serving as the CFO for The Phoenix, Ms. Malley served as the company’s Chief Administrative Officer and was responsible for Human Resources, IT, and other administrative functions. A proud resident of Hartford, Ms. Malley is a member of the Bushnell Center for Performing Arts’ board of trustees and serves on the board of directors for the MetroHartford Alliance, the Connecticut Forum and the iQuilt Partnership, among others. She holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Western New England College.
"I am excited to begin officially working with Mayor Bronin and his team," said Ms. Malley. “I will be partnering with all areas of city government to ensure we are focused on addressing our challenges and executing on our priorities."
Mr. Hill, who serves as the COO for the City, is being nominated to take on a new CFO role. As CFO, he will be the head of finance for the City. Also, he will oversee both the Finance Department and the Office of Management, Budget & Grants (OMB). The OMB Director will report to the CFO rather than to the Chief Operating Officer.
Before joining the City of Hartford, Mr. Hill served the City of Norfolk, VA for five years. His positions in Norfolk included Director of Finance & Business Services and, subsequently, Assistant City Manager.
Mr. Hill was also a Senior Vice President with BB&T Capital Markets’ Public Finance Group and Executive Director of the Virginia Resources Authority, the state’s funding source for local government infrastructure financing. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Economics from Hampton University and is a member of the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA).
"I look forward to the opportunity to work with Mayor Bronin, City Council, Treasurer Cloud and the residents and businesses of our Capital City with a focus on developing strategies and plans for implementation to address the systemic and institutional issues, problems and situations facing Hartford’s financial future,” said Mr. Hill.

Each respective nomination requires Common Council approval.
