John Brown Named Treasurer for Board of Regents

John Brown, vice chancellor for fiscal affairs for the University System of Georgia (USG), was named treasurer for the University System’s governing body, the Board of Regents, effective immediately. Brown will continue his current responsibilities overseeing the System’s financial affairs, as well as the duties of board treasurer. The 18-member board voted to make Brown treasurer following the departure in June of the former treasurer, Usha Ramachandran.

Brown joined the staff of the Board of Regents on July 1, after serving since 2005 as director of the House Budget Office for the Georgia House of Representatives. He has served the State of Georgia for more than 26 years with a focus on budget and finance.

He also served in the Office of Planning and Budget (OPB) as an education analyst for the USG and the Georgia Department of Education from 1986 to 1994. During that time he was involved in the initial development of the Pre-Kindergarten and HOPE Scholarship programs funded by the state lottery. Another focus of his work centered on education finance and the Quality Basic Education (QBE) funding formula.

Brown served for two years, from 1994 to 1996, as executive director of the Georgia Board of Physician Workforce, the agency that administers medical education and residency programs designed to address the need for medical professionals in Georgia.

In 1996, he returned to OPB, where he worked until 2005, first as the special assistant to the director, then as director of the General Government Division, followed by director of the Educational Development Division. He went on to serve as OPB’s deputy director until his appointment with the House Budget Office.

Brown holds both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in business administration from the University of Georgia.
