N.J. State Human Resources Executive Comes to CUNY

The University’s newly-appointed Director of Human Resource Services Arthur E. Brown, Jr. assumed his duties early in May. Succeeding Samuel Phillips, who retired, Brown will be responsible for guiding CUNY recruitment, testing, classification, staffing, retention, and payroll services. He was appointed by Vice Chancellor for Faculty and Staff Relations Brenda Malone.

Brown was most recently the Assistant Commissioner for Operations at the New Jersey Department of Personnel, where he was responsible for all areas of human resource management for the State of New Jersey, supervising a staff of more than 300.

In this position he implemented web-based recruitment, computer-based testing, and shared services centers.

He also served as the senior human resource executive on a board charged with acquiring and installing a comprehensive new management information system. This experience will aid him in planning and implementing a new CUNY Human Resource Information System. Brown is the holder of a B.A. in English and psychology and a Master’s in business administration from Rider University.
