Introducing our new Business Office team!
We are very excited to share the news that we have hired two new staff members, who will have the responsibility to run our Business Office.
Marianne Zarillo is our new part-time Business Manager. She brings many years of corporate finance experience, with companies like Verizon and Lucent.

About two years ago she realized she wanted to 'give something back', so she and her husband established an Allstate Insurance agency, with two local offices.

Marianne is originally from New Jersey, and has been in the Lehigh Valley for 15 years. The Zarillos now live in Upper Black Eddy, 'right along the river', with their two cats.
In addition to gardening, reading and sewing, the light of Marianne's life is her eight nieces and nephews, and her one-year-old grandnephew. In fact when she joined us for her first Zoom staff meeting, her Zoom nametag read "Aunt Marianne" - her favorite title!

Joining Marianne in the Business Office is our new Bookkeeper, Cindy Matthews.

Actually, it's a bit of a misnomer to call her our 'new' Bookkeeper, as Cindy has actually been handling her responsibilities since October. She initially began her First Pres tenure as a temporary employee, which was recently made permanent.
Cindy was born and raised in Easton, and still makes it her home.

She has over 40 years' experience in the financial arena, having started as a bank teller. Over the years she gained more knowledge and took on more responsibilities, and recently retired from a full-time position with a management company. After retiring she decided to work for a temporary agency, which brought her to First Pres.

Cindy's two sons and three grandsons live in the area, and she spends a lot of time with them.
They enjoy camping and going on vacations together, as well as watching movies, playing mini-golf and bowling.

We are very appreciative of all the volunteers and staff who have kept our Business Office 'up and running' these past months, and very happy to have these two professionals on board to move our church forward!
