Diocesan Office Welcomes Two New Colleagues, Offers Heartfelt Thanks to Two Dear Friends
Rich Sagui and Ann Carroll Assume Diocesan Financial Administrator and Office Assistant Roles
By Maurice L. Harris
The Diocesan Office at Rock Point is geared up for two transitions with the recent appointment of Richard Sagui to the position of financial administrator following the retirement of Julie Giguere, and the naming of Ann Carroll as office assistant following the departure of Taylor Vaughan. To follow are details of the transitions:
Financial Administrator. The Episcopal Church in Vermont is pleased to announce the appointment of Rich Sagui to the position of Financial Administrator, effective March 12. In this role, Rich will be responsible for providing accounting functions for all funds of the Diocese and serving as the principal agent for the receipt and distribution of funds. Additionally, Rich will be responsible for serving as Diocesan liaison and administrator for the Trustees of the Diocese and the primary contact for congregations participating in the Unit Fund, the diocese’s pooled investment portfolio.
Rich grew up in Burlington and gained more than 17 years of experience in financial administration and accounting working for various for-profit and nonprofit organizations in New York City; Seattle, Washington; and Washington, D.C. He returned to Vermont in 2016 to be closer to family and most recently served as accounting manager for Trafalgar Square Books, a book publisher located in Pomfret. Rich will be moving to the Burlington area for his new job with the Diocese, which is based at the Diocesan Office at Rock Point.
Rich succeeds Julie Giguere who retired from the post on February 23, 2018, after 14 years.
Office Administrator. Bishop Ely, the Diocesan Ministry Support Team, and all at Rock Point recently expressed their gratitude and best wishes to Taylor Vaughan, who worked as a part-time office assistant at the Diocesan Office for just over two years. Taylor recently announced her intention to relocate to Northern Virginia to be closer to family in the Washington D.C. area and pursue her dream of starting her own business. During her tenure, Taylor was instrumental in launching and editing the quarterly Rock Point Partners & Friends newsletter, which today has nearly 1,000 subscribers.
As part of this transition, Burlington-resident Ann Carroll has accepted the position as the new part-time office assistant, effective March 1. Ann brings more than 30 years of experience in public affairs, event management, and administrative experience to the role and has spent the past several years of her career in customer-facing relationship-management roles. Just prior to joining the Diocesan Ministry Support Team, Ann worked as a patient care coordinator for Champlain Sports Medicine.
Please join us in welcoming Rich and Ann to the Diocesan Ministry Support Team. Their contact information can be found on the Diocesan website at http://diovermont.org/ministry-support-team.php.
