BOSTON – Today, Treasurer Deborah Goldberg named Sue Perez and Sarah Kim as Deputy Treasurers for the State of Massachusetts.

Sue Perez was promoted from her previous position as Assistant Treasurer and will continue serving as Executive Director of the Massachusetts Clean Water Trust and overseeing the Commonwealth’s Debt department.

Ms. Perez has over 25 years of experience in accounting, audit, and financial management and is a graduate of the Boston University School of Management. She has been the Senior Finance Director for a $3.4 billion service company and at the other end of the spectrum, was one of the initial members of a start-up company with the responsibility of establishing the finance and human resources departments. Perez was an auditor at Pricewaterhouse Coopers, during which time she received her CPA.

“I am thrilled to continue to work with Sue and to have her serve in this new capacity at Treasury,” said Treasurer Deb Goldberg. “I am confident that as Deputy Treasurer, her in-depth financial background will serve the people of Massachusetts well.”

Sarah Kim has served as General Counsel to the Office of the State Treasurer and Receiver General since the start of Treasurer Goldberg’s administration. As General Counsel, she manages the legal team that provides support to the Treasury.

Before joining the Treasury, Ms. Kim was an Assistant Attorney General in the Fraud and Financial Crimes Division under Attorney General Martha Coakley. Previously, she was an attorney in the litigation practice group of Bingham McCutchen LLP (now Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP). Ms. Kim is a graduate of Villanova University School of Law and Dartmouth College.

“I am delighted to name Sarah as Deputy Treasurer,” said Treasurer Goldberg. “As General Counsel, Sarah has shown remarkable professionalism. Her legal expertise will benefit her greatly.”

A businesswoman, local official and community leader, Deb Goldberg was elected state treasurer in 2014 on a platform to protect taxpayer dollars, bring new levels of transparency to state government and advance policies that break down barriers and create economic empowerment.
