Shay Nagarsheth Tapped as Danbury’s Economic Development by Mayor
City Hall in Danbury has been busy of late, checking boxes and blasting out press releases.
Last week, Danbury Mayor Dean Esposito announced the formation of a task force to combat homelessness in the Hat City. Monday (2/28/22), the Mayor announced the city will purchase the Cartus building and land on Apple Ridge Road for the creation of the Danbury Career Academy, and now this.
Danbury Mayor Dean Esposito has tapped Shay Nagarsheth to be Danbury's Director of Economic Development. Nagarsheth takes over for Roger Palanzo who left the office to become the Chief of Staff for Mayor Esposito.
Nagarsheth's appointment was made official on Tuesday (3/1/22) in a press release. Mayo Esposito had this to say of Shay Nagarsheth:
“Shay Nagarsheth will make a tremendous Director of Economic Development because of his passion for the City of Danbury and his experience with businesses of all sizes. Danbury is the shining city on the hill for the State of Connecticut, and with the leadership of Shay Nagarsheth we will not only continue in that tradition but expand upon it.”
A delighted Nagarsheth accepted the position with gratitude remarking:
“I’m honored to be named Director of Economic Development by Mayor Dean Esposito. With his vision and leadership, Danbury will continue to be the top city to live, work and raise a family in Connecticut. I look forward to being part of the Esposito Administration.”
Nagarsheth appears to check all the private and public service boxes. He was on the city council, he's been a legislative board member of the chamber of commerce, and has worked in high level positions in the private sector. Nagarsheth also has a Bachelor’s of Science in Marketing from the University of Connecticut, along with a MBA from Sacred Heart University.
