NECC Employee Mary Chatigny Receives Recognition at International Conference

Mary Chatigny, Director of Human Resources

Mary Chatigny, director of human resources at Northern Essex Community College, recently received the Gary L. Filan Excellence in Leadership Award at the 22nd Annual Chair Academy International Leadership Conference.

This award is given in memory of Gary Filan, who was founder and executive director of the Chair Academy for the last twenty years before passing away last spring. Founded in 1992, the Chair Academy is an internationally recognized organization whose mission is focused on designing and conducting world-class leadership training and development programs.

Chatigny has worked as the director of human resources since 1999. She earned her MBA with a graduate certificate in Human Resource Management from Southern New Hampshire University and her BS in Business Administration from Suffolk University. Chatigny has worked with colleagues in the development of NECC’s Leadership Academy, a year-long leadership development program open to Northern Essex faculty and staff. She also co-facilitates the leadership retreat and workshops on emotional intelligence, the DiSC behavior assessment tool, and conflict each year.
