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. He was appointed Supervisory Attorney in 1985, and, shortly after the Hartford office was upgraded to the status of a Regional Office in 1988, Mr. Kreisberg was appointed its first Regional Attorney.
A native of Bayside, Queens, New York, Mr. Kreisberg earned his B.S. degree in 1974 from Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations, and his J.D. degree in 1977 from American University’s Washington College of Law. Mr. Kreisberg is the former Chair, and longtime member, of the Executive Committee of the Labor and Employment Law Section of the Connecticut Bar Association.
