MELISSA “MISSY” BROWN

I am a 1986 graduate of Horace Maynard High School.  I attended State Tech Community College, working toward my banking certification while working full-time at First State/FSG Bank for 23 years.  I began as a bookkeeper in 1989 for two local branches, then was promoted to Operations Officer of Demand Deposits for over 30 branches across eastern and middle Tennessee until 2012.  I began work at the Union County Finance Office in 2013 as a payroll specialist processing the board of education payroll.  I was then promoted to Deputy Finance Director in 2016.  While in this position, I obtained my Certified Municipal Financial Officer certification in 2017 and my Certified County Financial Officer in 2019.  I have been married to my husband, Chip Brown, for 35 years.  He is employed as an IT Tech III for the UCBOE.  We have one 20 year old daughter, Hannah Brown, who attends Pellissippi State Community College.

In regular commission meeting of July 9, 2012, the Union County Commission unanimously approved the adoption of the County Financial Management Act of 1981. The finance director was appointed December 1, 2012 and implementation plan was executed April 1, 2013.

The finance office administers the financial transactions for the County Government, Board of Education, Highway Department and Emergency Medical Services.
