Veteran rec employee named interim chief

Mar 18, 2010 11:18:00 PM - thestate.com
The interim executive director of the Richland County Recreation Commission is an up-through-the-ranks employee.

The commission voted 4-1 Thursday to name James Brown as interim director. Brown, 53, has 25 years of service in the recreation field and most recently was the agency's director of facilities operations.

The commission fired executive director Brian Devost on Monday after just seven months on the job. Chairwoman J. Marie Green said simply that Devost wasn't a good fit for the agency.

Green hopes the search for a replacement will be completed within six months. In the meantime, she said, "I feel confident that (Brown) will do a good job."

Brown is a Benedict College graduate. He coached basketball and baseball at his alma mater before joining the recreation commission staff in 1989. He was the longtime director of Meadowlake Park before moving up to director of facilities operations.
