Bal Harbour village leaders have filled a vacant seat on a volunteer board that oversees the police department’s pension fund.
The village council unanimously appointed resident Daniel Gold, director and founder of Rushteam Properties, to the five-member board at a meeting this month.
”If I can put myself in a position to assist the council, the board, in any way I can, it would be a pleasure to do so,” Gold told council members.
Gold will fill the seat vacated by former member Cecil Mullen, who resigned in January citing a medical condition. Mullen had served the board since 2006. Gold will serve a two-year term.
The board is composed of five members: two police officers elected by their peers, two Bal Harbour residents appointed by the council, and one member selected by the other four members. The board serves as the plan administrator for the pension fund. Three residents submitted resumes before the May 29 deadline: Gold, Dr. Lois P. Krop and Stephen H. Shulman.
Gold will join members Abraham Gotman, Det. Paul Eppler, Sgt. Jack Young and the board chairwoman Lois Evans.
Gold, who is from London, said he has plenty of experience that will come in handy.
”I firmly believe that my worldwide experience and running of major businesses makes me an ideal candidate for this position,” Gold said.
