The top employee at the State Bar of Wisconsin will be stepping down next June.

Executive Director George Brown will retire June 30, 2017, according to the bar’s website. He has been in the position for 16 years, and by his retirement will have spent nearly 30 years at different roles in the bar.

The bar’s Board of Governors will follow a succession plan to fill the vacancy, which starts with State Bar President Ralph Cagle appointing a committee at the board’s June meeting to search and vet candidates for the board to consider.

Brown started as the State Bar’s public affairs director in 1986 after working in the Wisconsin Legislature in roles such as deputy director of the Wisconsin Assembly’s Democratic caucus staff.
