The name of Fairfield's new chief of staff may ring a bell.
During his more than 40 years as a resident, Thomas Dubrosky has been involved in youth athletics, local veterans organizations, and town government.
Dubrosky assumed the role of Chief of Staff in the First Selectman's Office in January. The position pays $90,000, and was last held by Rober Mayer, who is now the town's Chief Fiscal Officer.
In making the announcement, First Selectman Michael Tetreau said:
“The Chief of Staff plays an instrumental role in the First Selectman’s Office and contributes to the success of our town. I am very pleased to welcome Mr. Dubrosky to this critical role. Tom brings the right mix of a strong managerial background coupled with a deep understanding of our community that will further strengthen the needs of our Town and will also help the First Selectman’s Office continue to provide quality service to our citizens.”
Dubrosky spent 42 years in the
pharmaceutical industry; 37 of those years with the multi-national Boehringer
Ingelheim Corp., in Ridgefield. He was the first
