Fleet Financial Group, Boston, has named executive vice president James G. Connolly as officer in charge of its Massachusetts commercial banking group.

He succeeded Norman DeLuca, who was earlier named managing director of Fleet's small-business banking group.

Mr. Connolly, an 11-year veteran of Fleet, was the division manager of its asset-based lending activities in Massachusetts.

He will now report to Leo R. Breitman, chairman and chief executive officer of Fleet National Bank Massachusetts and managing director of the holding company's commercial banking activities.
