First selectman appoints new chief of staff
FAIRFIELD — There is a new chief of staff in town.
First Selectman Mike Tetreau announced the appointment of Nancy Carberry to the position on Nov. 13.
Carberry, who had assumed the role on a part-time basis on Oct. 23, said she plans to bring her corporate and leadership experience to her new full-time position.
“The corporate space gives you a great sense of organizational efficiency,” she said in an interview Nov. 14. “It gives you a great sense of working with others in cross-functional areas and understand consumers.”
Carberry boasts over 20 years of experience in the corporate world of the pharmaceutical, media and entertainment industries.
Her resume includes positions as vice president of global consumer insights at WWE Entertainment and vice president of global research at Warner Bros Home Entertainment Group.
Carberry described her role in research and data-driven analytics as looking at what consumers wanted, something she hopes will help determine how the town can better serve constituents.
“My roles have revolved around having a deep understanding of the key touchpoints and helping the organization satisfy those needs,” Carberry said. “The way I would like to transfer that is by becoming an advocate for all of the town constituents here.”
Thomas Dubrosky, the previous chief of staff, retired from the position in August. Dubrosky was appointed in February 2014, was a former manager in the pharmaceuticals field and had served on several town government bodies.
“The chief of staff plays an instrumental role in the First Selectman’s Office and contributes to the success of our town. I look forward to Ms. Carberry helping us continue to provide quality service to our residents,” Tetreau said in a press release.
A Democrat, Carberry said she sees her new role as an apolitical one.
Originally from Philadelphia, Carberry moved to Fairfield in 2011 along with her husband and their two cats and four dogs.
Carberry obtained her bachelor’s degree in business administration from West Chester University in Pennsylvania, followed by her MBA in marketing from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.
