Light Plant Hires New Assistant Manager
Kristina Frizzell joins the staff at the city's light plant as the new assistant manager.
The Peabody Municipal Light Plant , which also serves South Lynnfield, announced Thursday that there's a new assistant manager on board at the city-owned utility company.
Kristina Frizzell was recently hired by General Manager Glenn Trueira for the job at a salary of $116,900.
Frizzell, who left her post as the general manager at the Rowley Municipal Lighting Plant to come to Peabody, brings with her 15 years of experience in the municipal light industry. She began her career at the Belmont Municipal Light Department, eventually working her way up to Business Director.
“Kristina brings a great deal of municipal business experience to PMLP,” said Trueira. "We look forward to working with Kristina and implementing a number of new and innovative business practices."
Trueira, who himself was promoted in January by city light commissioners to take the top job, said from the start that he planned to hire an assistant manager.
Frizzell has a bachelor's degree in accounting from Bentley College and a master's in public administration from Suffolk University. She lives in Woburn with her husband and two children.
