Brown Bio

Nancy Brown

Nancy Brown was graduated from Butler in 1972 with a major in English (although, to her advisor's dismay, she also spent a lot of time in the College of Music). Her first job in the public information office of the Indiana Department of Education was the beginning of a 35-year career in public relations, enhanced by Investor Relations and B2B marketing assignments. She also served as Public Information Officer for the Indianapolis Public Schools and in the public relations, investor relations and marketing departments of Indiana National Bank and its successor institutions. She retired in the summer of 2007 from the post of Director of Corporate Relations for ITT Educational Services, Inc., a NYSE-traded company that operates more than 90 technical colleges across the US.

Community service included terms on the Boards of the March of Dimes and the Indianapolis Ballet Theatre. She is a member of the Public Relations Society of America and was a founding member of the board of the Virtual Chapter of the National Investor Relations Society.

Nancy and her husband, Darrell Pieczko, live a half dozen blocks from the Butler campus and very much enjoy the atmosphere that the carillon contributes to the neighborhood.
