Nixon Peabody Partner Gerry Leone Selected as Executive Director of the Revere Tornado Relief Fund

August 01, 2014 // // Boston, MA - In the wake of a devastating tornado, the city of Revere has chosen Nixon Peabody partner Gerry Leone as its executive director to oversee the Revere Tornado Relief Fund. Dozens of people lost their homes and businesses while others are dealing with major property damage from the July 28, 2014, storm. Damage is estimated in the millions. The fund will help residents and business owners impacted by the tornado.

"In selecting an executive director to oversee this fund, I wanted someone with integrity, an impeccable reputation and someone who cares deeply about helping people. Gerry is a proven leader and problem solver, a true public servant who knows how to help people in their time of need," said Revere Mayor Daniel Rizzo.

In his remarks, Mayor Rizzo highlighted Leone's background as a manager of criminal and civil prosecutorial offices. Before joining Nixon Peabody, Gerry served as the elected Middlesex County district attorney, where he ran a nationally recognized office; the appointed first assistant United States attorney, where he headed the anti-terrorism program and prosecuted Al Qaeda terrorist Richard "The Shoebomber" Reid; and the appointed chief of the MA Attorney General's Office Criminal Bureau. At Nixon Peabody, Gerry conducts internal and governmental investigations for public and private clients and provides valuable and strategic advice and counsel regarding a range of matters where decision making and problem solving are a priority. He represents and protects the reputations of public, private, nonprofit and for-profit clients in civil, criminal, and internal matters, while managing and resolving these highly sensitive matters and inquiries discretely, efficiently and effectively.

"I look forward to helping manage the process and administer the fund with timeliness, transparency and integrity on behalf of all those who will charitably donate to this very worthy cause, and those who will receive aid because they suffer from unmet needs due to the serious damage caused by the tornado," said Gerry Leone.
