Brown named director of Correction Enterprises
RALEIGH – Secretary Theodis Beck has named Karen Brown director of Correction Enterprises, effective June 1. As director, Brown will oversee all sections and operations under Correction Enterprises, which has prison industries across the state.
“Karen Brown’s strong business and finance background makes her an ideal person for this job,” said Secretary Beck. “I am confident her experience with the Department and as a manager will help her excel in this new role.”
Brown joined the Department 11 years ago in the Central Engineering section and has been serving as assistant director for administrative services. Prior to that she managed a finance company.
“I am looking forward to working with the professional and dedicated Enterprises staff,” said Brown. “This division is one of the best-run and most unique in state government and I hope to continue to build on the strengths already in place.”
Correction Enterprises provides quality goods and services to government agencies at competitive market prices. Inmates supervised by Enterprises staff learn trades in a variety of industries, including production of license tags, printing, sewing, painting, metal sign production, furniture manufacturing and farming. CE receives no support from state budget allocations and, like a business, is totally supported through the goods and services it produces and sells.
