Naugatuck, CT, January 2, 2013 — Naugatuck Savings Bank announced Monday that Charles J. Boulier, III has been named Chief Executive Officer and President effective January 1, 2013.

Yanarella will continue to help guide the bank as Chairman of the Board.
“On behalf of everyone at Naugatuck Savings Bank, I want to thank Mark for his dedicated service since joining the bank in 1970.
