Brookline Bancorp (BRKL) in Boston has named Carl Carlson chief financial officer and treasurer.

He will start April 1, the company said in a press release Wednesday.

Carlson succeeds Julie Gerschick, who resigned Dec. 31. Gerschick stepped down to pursue other interests, according to Brookline. Her resignation led the $5.2 billion-asset company to take a $900,000 compensation charge in the fourth quarter.

Carlson, whose hiring was announced Wednesday, had been senior vice president and deputy CFO at Webster Financial (WBS) in Waterbury, Conn., since 2011.

Before joining Webster in 2007, he was an officer at North Fork Bancorp. in Melville, N.Y., which was acquired by Capital One Financial (COF).
