Marino, 51, will begin as Winthrop town manager on May 23. He has been the Ipswich town manager for the past four years.

Letterie said Marino will receive a salary of $205,000 per year for the length of the contract.

“I’m looking forward to being the town manager of Winthrop,” said Marino. “I was excited to apply for the position, and I had a great interview process with the Council, and I’m excited to get started on May 23.”

Marino has begun collaborating with Interim Town Manager Terence Delehanty on job descriptions for the vacant Winthrop positions of chief financial officer, treasurer, and assessor.

Marino has met with several Winthrop department heads, including Supt. of Schools Lisa Howard.

Marino grew up on the South Shore in the town of Pembroke. “My father [Leo Marino] was a Boston firefighter and moved us down there from Dorchester when I was 3 years old,” said Marino.

Marino served in the United States Navy for four years and received his college degree from Bridgewater University. He resides in Lynnfield and is married with two children ages 28 and 11.

Letterie said he is pleased to bring Marino aboard and happy with the contract.

“A great deal is when both sides get what they want and this agreement is absolutely that,” said Letterie. “Tony gets to come work for a town that he already has a passion for and has been on his radar for a while, and Winthrop gets a town manager that has all the attributes we have been looking for.

“Tony has a great skill set, personality, and that blue-collar work ethic that will be able to lead us out of stagnation,” Letterie added. “I am in-credibly excited to get started working with Tony.”
