ACSD gets new business head
MIDDLEBURY — The Addison Central School District has a new business manager: Brittany Gilman, who currently serves in that capacity for the Rutland Central Supervisory Union (RCSU).
Gilman will officially begin her new job on June 1, taking over for Josh Quinn, who is stepping down to become an audit manager with a Maine-based accounting firm, RHR Smith & Co.
Peter Burrows, Addison Central superintendent, said Gilman had the right credentials and emerged as the top candidate during interviews.
“Brittany comes to ACSD with significant experience in both accounting and business management leadership with a degree in accounting from Castleton State College, which will allow her to hit the ground running here in ACSD,” Burrows said. “Brittany’s experience within education, her proven leadership of supervisory union fiscal management and her background in accounting made her an ideal fit to continue to build on the strong foundation that Josh helped us create in ACSD.”
Gilman’s talents go beyond numbers. She also earned a bachelor of arts in music performance with a concentration in voice, during her studies at Castleton State.
She’s served as business manager for RCSU since June of 2016. The RCSU includes Proctor Jr./Sr. High School and the elementary schools in Proctor, Rutland and West Rutland.
Prior to her stint with the RCSU, Gilman worked as an accounting manager with The Royal Group (2013-2016) and as an accounting clerk and recoding secretary for the town of Castleton (2012-2013).
In her new job, Gilman will be the top numbers-cruncher for the ACSD, which includes Middlebury Union Middle and High Schools and the elementary schools in Bridport, Cornwall, Middlebury, Ripton, Salisbury, Shoreham and Weybridge.
“I am thrilled to be joining the team at ACSD,” Gilman said through an email. “The welcome I have already received has been incredible, and I am looking forward to hitting the ground running. It is immediately clear that the team here is dynamic and cohesive and I am excited to be a part of that. Additionally, the community support for the schools in ACSD is obvious and very encouraging.”
She added she’s enjoyed her time with the RCSU, and is now “excited for this new opportunity.”
