Mark Brainard, new Delaware Technical CC executive vice president
The Delaware Technical Community College board of trustees hired a new executive vice president this afternoon.
Mark T. Brainard was selected for the newly created job that was open only to internal candidates. The executive vice president will serve as the second in command at the community college. The job was created this year at the recommendation of longtime college President Orlando J. George Jr. He will begin work July 1.
Brainard, who was working as a vice president and director of the Stanton/Wilmington campus, previously served six years under Gov. Ruth Ann Minner as her top aid, the chief of staff. Brainard has a long history of service to the community college. He was named to this position in 2010 by the trustees, replacing Lawrence H. Miller, who retired after 39 years. He served assistant vice president for personnel and legal affairs from 1995 to 1999. He returned in 2008 as assistant campus director of the Stanton-Wilmington.
George, 67, has not announced when he will retire. Creation of the executive vice president has been described as part of the process for that transition. A qualified internal candidate for the presidency could train alongside George, he said.
