Assumption Names Daniel DiTullio Executive Assistant for Government, Community Relations

Daniel DiTullio has joined Assumption College as executive assistant for government and community relations, a position that reports to Assumption College President Francesco Cesareo. In this role, DiTullio will interact with public officials and members of the community, identify new partnerships, and address issues at all levels of government that affect Assumption.

"I am pleased to welcome Dan DiTullio to Assumption College," said President Cesareo. "In his role, he will focus on strengthening and broadening the College’s relationships with local, state and federal government officials and the community, among other responsibilities. Dan will also help explore opportunities that encourage our students to put their knowledge and skills to work, helping the Worcester community."

DiTullio brings extensive government and community relations experience to his new post. He served for more than five years in the office of Massachusetts State Rep. Harold P. Naughton Jr., D-Clinton. Throughout his tenure in the Statehouse, DiTullio developed strong relationships with local, state and federal officials; as well as with community groups and private businesses throughout Greater Worcester. As Rep. Naughton's chief of staff, DiTullio was also responsible for overseeing constituent and legislative matters concerning the 12th Worcester District during the lawmaker's 2006-2007 overseas deployment with the U.S. Army Reserve.

Most recently, DiTullio was government sales and marketing representative for Waste Management Inc., a Fortune 200 corporation. He oversaw government contracts in central and western Massachusetts and represented the company’s interest before government agencies, communities and private companies.

A 2001 graduate of Saint Michael's College in Vermont, DiTullio lives in Clinton, Mass., where he belongs to the Clinton Exchange Club; Lodge of Elks; and the Ancient Order of Hibernians. He is an active member of the St. John's the Guardian of Our Lady Parish and also serves as a director of Clinton Hospital Foundation.

"Over the years, I have remained very involved with civic groups and charitable organizations," said DiTullio. "I enjoy this immensely and look forward to sharing these experiences and passion to positively represent the interests of Assumption College."
