David Corso, a former assistant commissioner of finance at the New Jersey Department of Education, has joined the Mt. Olive School District. On Aug. 1, he will begin serving as the district’s business administrator, replacing Marge Conroy who is retiring. Until then, he will serve as the assistant administrator of the business office.
“Dave is highly regarded in the school business field and brings a wealth of experience to Mt. Olive,” said Dr. Larrie Reynolds, superintendent of schools. “We’re lucky to have him and his expertise. Our business office under Marge [Conroy] has been incredibly well-run and efficient. With Dave aboard in these interim weeks until she retires, the transition will be absolutely seamless.”
Before coming to Mt. Olive on May 16, Corso was with the Parsippany-Troy Hills School District where he served as the assistant superintendent of business. In addition to his responsibility planning and managing a budget of approximately $140 million, he also oversaw school district operations including transportation, food services, and maintenance. Prior to joining Parsippany-Troy Hills, he spent 22 years with the state education department.
Corso holds a bachelor’s in business management from Saint Francis University and a master’s in public administration from Rutgers.
