Norwalk Community College welcomes Lucy Brown as the new Chief Operating Officer.
Brown served as the Director of Human Resources at Gateway Community College since 1999. In this role she managed human resources administrative functions and labor relations. She also functioned as the college’s Equal Employment Opportunity Officer.
Prior to joining Gateway, she engaged in corporate legal practice in labor and compliance law and retail banking. She served as General Counsel and Secretary to a major Connecticut bank. Her career in banking was followed by time in private practice with a Connecticut law firm as a partner heading the firm’s employment law department.
Brown left the practice of law and worked as a corporate human resources executive in banking before focusing on a career in higher education.
After completing undergraduate studies at a historically black university in Mississippi, she earned her law degree from Notre Dame University Law School.
