The Division announced early this month that it is maintaining the four-region split of Field Offices
(North, Coastal, South, and West) and the respective Team Leads over each (Cheryl Dean, Ken
Huchton, Carol Fougerat, and now Teresa Hartley, replacing Don Woods). In an interesting twist,
however, it was announced that the Team Leads will supervise not only the Hearing Officers in their
regions, but the BROs as well. The former BRO team leads will now be acting as "liaisons" between
the BROs and the new Team Leads.
Jennifer Hopens and Allen Craddock will serve as regional Managers over the North/West and
South/East halves of the state, respectively.
