Darrell Hill will become Connecticut’s deputy treasurer on Dec 16, state Treasurer Shawn Wooden announced Tuesday.
Hill most recently was finance director at Access Health CT, Connecticut’s insurance marketplace. Previously he was interim chief financial officer for the New Haven Public Schools, CFO and chief operating officer for the City of Hartford, and assistant city manager in Norfolk, Virginia.
“I have and continue to enjoy working with people dedicated to public service and look forward to doing the same as deputy treasurer,” Hill said in a statement.
Wooden cited Hill’s 25 years of financial and management experience in the public and private sectors.
“I am excited to have someone with Darrell’s extensive qualifications join my team,” said Wooden, who took office in January. “I look forward to him putting that experience to work in overseeing Treasury’s core operating divisions and carrying forth our mission of protecting taxpayers, pension fund beneficiaries and our investors.”
Hill’s executive experience also includes a stretch as senior vice president at BB&T Capital Markets, where he provided municipal investment banking services for both public and private offerings in Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, and the District of Columbia.
Additionally, he was executive director for the Virginia Resources Authority and a vice president at Davenport & Co. LLC and the former Wheat First Securities Inc.
Hill holds a bachelor of science degree with honors in economics from Hampton University.
