Jonathan B. Kreisberg was appointed Regional Director of the Boston Regional Office (Region 1) when that office was consolidated with the Hartford Regional Office (Region 34), where he had served as Regional Director since 2009. Mr. Kreisberg began his NLRB career in 1976 as a law student intern in the NLRB Division of Judges in Washington, D.C., and then served for almost three years as staff counsel to former Board Member John Penello. In December 1979, Mr. Kreisberg transferred to the newly created then Subregion 39 in Hartford where he served for five years as a Field Attorney.
