The Regional School Unit 13 board has hired a Massachusetts man to be the district’s business manager.

The board voted Thursday night to hire Peter Roche.

He succeeds Toni Reed, who resigned to take a job with the Maine Municipal Association bond bank.

Roche has served as interim business manager for schools in Massachusetts and Connecticut since retiring. His last job as interim business manager was in Plainfield, Conn.

He will be paid $73,000 a year.
