In June 2011, Robert F. Nolan was appointed a Member of the Board of Directors for the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation as the City Council Designee for the Borough of the Bronx.
Mr. Nolan retired from the Office of the Bronx Borough President after nearly 30 years of service. He served as Budget Director for the Bronx Borough President’s Office and was responsible for the oversight of more than 250 capital projects including improvements to schools, libraries, parks and cultural institutions. He also recommended and monitored more than 100 youth and senior programs throughout the County.
Prior to serving as Budget Director, Mr. Nolan served in several positions in the Bronx Borough President’s office, including Deputy for Intergovernmental Affairs and Director of Operations.
From the late 1970s into the 1980s, Mr. Nolan was the Director of Economic Development and is justly proud to have written the proposal that resulted in the creation of the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation, a program through which many small businesses received affordable loans from the federal government which, in turn, helped revitalize the Bronx.
Mr. Nolan is a lifelong resident of Bronx County and a graduate of Fordham University. He is married to the former Susan Gannascoli and is the father of two children, Christopher and Vivian.
