Berkshire Bank Chairman to Retire

J. Williar Dunleavy, chairman of Berkshire Bank and its parent company, will retire in September, the bank announced Wednesday.

He will be succeeded on the board of both the bank and Berkshire Hills Bancorp by David Brunelle, currently vice chairman. Brunelle is co-founder of Northe Pointe Wealth Management in Worcester. He has been on the board since 2017.
