MWA Welcomes New Board Members

Jan 25, 2021 by Chris Wood, Ph.D.

The MWA Board of Directors welcomed three new Board Members to the ranks in January, as a result of elections and appointments to start the New Year.

Desmond D. Brown was elected as the District 2 Member of the MWA Board on June 9, 2020. He filled the seat previously occupied by former MWA Board Member Merritt Johnson, III.

Mr. Brown is a Macon native who grew up in and around many historic neighborhoods in the community. His professional career includes experience as an economic growth developer, a commercial mortgage broker, a loan officer, and as a certified investment banker.

Mrs. Valerie Wynn, who represents District 1 on the Commission, serves on the MWA Board as one of the two elected Macon-Bibb County Commissioners appointed to the Authority.

Mrs. Wynn is recently retired from a successful career in business. Professionally, she enjoyed a 46-year career in the insurance industry, working for several major insurers.

The second Macon-Bibb County Commissioner serving for the first time on the MWA Board is Mr. Bill Howell. Mr. Howell, who represents District 7 on the Commission, is a retired Contractor who worked more than 30 years in his own businesses.
