Westfield, Massachusetts – January 3, 2019 – Tighe & Bond kicked off the new year with a new President and Chief Executive Officer. Robert Belitz assumed the firm’s top leadership position on January 1, becoming Tighe & Bond’s ninth leader in its 108-year history.

Belitz, who has more than 25 years of experience in the industry, joined Tighe & Bond more than four years ago as the firm’s Chief Financial Officer. In this role, he has directed the firm’s financial operations and priorities, as well as contributed to growth strategies consistent with the Tighe & Bond’s continued expansion in the marketplace. Belitz has extensive experience in corporate governance, team building, financial management, acquisitions, and a proven record of success at both private and public firms. Beyond his corporate leadership role, Belitz is an active volunteer with Special Olympics of Connecticut.

Belitz succeeds former President and Chief Executive Officer, David Pinsky, who retired from the position at the close of 2018 after serving in the position for 13 years and being with the firm for 31 years. This marks the culmination of a well thought out succession planning process that was initiated in early 2017 and led by Tighe & Bond’s Board of Directors. Pinsky will continue in the role of Chairman of the Board through April 2019, while supporting Belitz and the firm on special projects.

“It is an honor to become Tighe & Bond’s President and CEO at this auspicious time. Dave’s leadership and vision have been instrumental in guiding Tighe & Bond to where it is today - with record growth, a strong culture, robust and broad employee ownership, and superb staff all supporting our strategic vision. My focus will be on helping Tighe & Bond continue to develop and execute strategies for our growth and success throughout the northeast, as well as helping our clients achieve their goals,” said Belitz.
