York County Staff Spotlight: David Nalchajian

Where did you grow up and go to school?


I grew up and attended school in the great City of Chelsea, Massachusetts. Many economic advantages and disadvantages existed from being on the opposite end of Boston via the Tobin Bridge. Middle school and beyond were tormented by the great Chelsea conflagration fire of 1972 that wiped out over one-third of the properties there. Post high school education includes Bunker Hill Community College, Northeastern U, UMASS Lowell and Merrimack College.


What prompted you to decide to seek employment with York County Maine Government?


Throughout my career in government, I have struggled with achieving (for me) a successful work-life balance. I was determined to make this an achievable goal; my search led me to York County Maine Government. I am comforted by my home and work families’ comments towards accomplishing this ultimate goal.

How long have you worked for county government and in what capacities? What is your current title?


I have been employed with YCG full-time since August 3, 2020. My employment is a result of the American Rescue Plan Act; I am the Financial Project Manager for the $40 million federal grant funds received by YCG. Additionally, I act as an appointed Procurement Agent, at the discretion of the County Manager.


What did you do before joining York County Government?


My professional career has been in municipal and county government. It is now evenly divided in years; I worked in IT development for the first half of my career, and now I am working in the Financial Services sector, predominately specializing in Enterprise Resource Planning.

What do you like most about your current job?


The access to a sustainable and rewarding work-life balance.

When you’re not working, what do you like to do?


I am a big sports fanatic; I watch anything and everything. I do this because I miss participating in sports and coaching young people through to maturity. I am also an avid reader, particularly action mysteries. Clive Cussler is one of my favorite authors.
