Times promotes circulation managers

The Gloucester Daily Times has promoted two people from within its circulation department.

Gloucester resident Christine Madruga is now the Times’ home delivery manager, publisher Mark Zappala announced. Filling her former role as district manager is Derek Pelletier, who was a temporary employee.

Madruga, the mother of two, has worked for the company for 16 years. She has an associate’s degree in criminal justice.

Madruga is secretary for the Gloucester High School Junior ROTC Boosters, and is involved with Pathways for Children in Cape Ann as chairperson of its Policy Council, and a parent on its Board of Directors.

Former delivery manager Joe Wilson left the Times for a position at The Apple Store at the Northshore Mall in Peabody.

Del Torchio joins J Barrett & Co.

Darryl Del Torchio, a full-time realtor, has joined J Barrett & Company in the Beverly Farms office.

A successful realtor for more than seven years, Del Torchio has an extensive background in sales and customer service that includes running Del Torchio Computers, which sold to Fortune 500 and 1000 companies. She was also at the Boston Company as an investment assistant for trust funds investments. The Gloucester native began her professional life servicing mobile homes sales in Florida after graduating from college.

“Every business skill you’ve ever acquired is put to use in sales whether it’s explaining legal jargon, helping buyers/sellers navigate through the sales/purchase process or simply being there to let clients vent — it’s always exciting,” said Del Torchio in a statement.

“As a company we are fortunate that Darryl is now on our team,” said Jon B. Gray, president, in a statement. “She has an impressive real estate background plus an intimate knowledge of the North Shore. Her expertise and experience are invaluable assets for our company and for clients who have the opportunity to work with her.”
