SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – The district has a new business administrator.

Board of Education members hired Pittstown resident David E. Pawlowski as the new business administrator during a special meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday night at Crossroads North Middle School.

Pawlowski will replace Thaddeus Thompson and make $162,000 a year in the position and will start work on Oct. 6.

Thompson resigned from the post in May and was supposed to leave at the end of the district’s contract year, June 30, but agreed to stay on in the role until October.

Thompson served as business administrator in the Lakewood School District before joining South Brunswick on July 1, 2016, the district’s website said.

He replaced Anthony Tonzini, who served for several years in the position.

According to Pawlowski’s LinkedIn web page, he has been the business administrator for the Alexandria Township School District since January 2014 and was a middle school principal in the district from September 2006.

Prior to that he served as an assistant principal in the Millburn School District, as the supervisor of curriculum and instruction for the Plummeted Township School District and as the director of educational technology at the Kent Place School in Summit.

According to the site, he received a bachelor’s degree in accounting and finance from Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas in 1992, a bachelor’s in elementary education from Emporia State University in Emporia, Kansas in 1995, and a master’s of education from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck in 2001.

Pawlowski is the second major hire from new superintendent Scott Feder.

Feder, who was hired to the district’s top position in March, took the reins of the 9,000-student district on July 1 from interim Superintendent Gary McCartney.

Feder hired former Professional Development Director Jennifer Dizzler as the Assistant Superintendent in charge of curriculum, a position vacated by long-time district employee Joanne Kerekes.

Paswlowski’s hiring now permanently fills the top positions in the district, several of which were vacant at one point or another following the tenure of embattled Superintendent Dr. Jerry Jellig, who resigned from the district in May 2016.
