Queens Supreme Court Chief Clerk Wins Post At CCRB

Daniel D. Chu, chairman of the Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB), announced on June 12 that the board has named Tracy Catapano-Fox as its new executive director. Her appointment is the culmination of a national search, begun in September 2012, during which the Board received over 200 applications and conducted three rounds of interviews. She will take her post on June 20.

“During the course of her career, Ms. Catapano-Fox has proven to be both a very capable attorney as well as an innovative administrator. She brings a wealth of relevant knowledge and a broad range of experience to this position,” said Chu.

Prior to joining the CCRB, Catapano- Fox was the chief clerk in the Queens County Supreme Court, Civil Term, where she was the highest ranking nonjudicial officer and assisted the administrative judge in supervising the day-today operations of the court, which entailed managing over 400 non-judicial employees and a $45 million budget. After graduating Boston College Law School in 1997, she also held positions as an assistant district attorney in Queens, a senior litigation associate at a private firm, a court attorney and law clerk in the Queens Supreme Court.

“The Board and I are delighted to have Ms. Catapano-Fox join the agency. With her background in law and public administration, she will provide the guidance and leadership that will ensure the agency’s future success in carrying out its oversight mission and its new prosecutorial responsibilities,” said the chairman.

“I am excited and looking forward to the challenge of working for this important city agency. My goals are to keep the CCRB on its current course of integrity and independence in its investigations, to support the professionalism and strength of its new prosecution unit and to explore ways of doing even more to fulfill the CCRB’s mandate,” said Catapano-Fox.
