Treasurer Steven Grossman has named Jessie Saintcyr as Deputy Treasurer, appointing his senior human resources official and the daughter of Haitian immigrants as one of his top five advisors.

“Jessie’s professionalism, depth of knowledge, and commitment to excellence made her the clear choice for Deputy Treasurer,” said Grossman.  “In this new position, she will be instrumental to our advancing our goals of enhancing government transparency, helping the economy, and protecting the public’s money.”

Saintcyr was hired at Treasury in January of 2011, and most recently served as an Assistant Treasurer and Director of Human Resources and Employment Counsel.  In her first year at the agency, Saintcyr redesigned the Human Resources department and staff roles to better suit Treasury needs and instituted a transparent hiring process and policies.  With a focus on recruiting top-notch candidates, she has also increased outreach to diverse professional organizations, resulting in 38 percent of new hires at Treasury being from diverse backgrounds.

"I am humbled by this honor,” said Saincyr.  “I look forward to the challenges of my new position and continuing to contribute to the success of the Treasury."

A Dorchester resident, Saintcyr earned a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and French from Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusetts and graduated from Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University.

Saintcyr sits on the board of YMCA Training, Inc. and the Career Services Advisory Board at Gordon College.  She is an active member of Jubilee Christian Church.
