LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the appointment of Joan Brophy, of Lincoln Park, to the city of Ecorse Receivership Transition Advisory Board.

Brophy is the development director for the Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency and previously served as a consultant to the chief development officer at Wayne County Economic Development Growth Engine. She has over 25 years of public sector experience serving a variety of stakeholders, including micro and small business enterprises, large business and institutional executives, and elected and appointed government officials. Brophy earned a bachelor’s degree from Fordham University.  She represents an individual with relevant professional experience and replaces Joyce Parker, who resigned.  

Other members of the City of Ecorse RTAB are: Edward Koryzno, Jr., representing the State Treasurer and Robert Bovitz, representing the Director of the Department of Technology, Management, and Budget. Members serve at the pleasure of the governor.
