DANBURY, Conn. -- PJ Prunty has been named new executive director of CityCenter Danbury.

In mid-August, he will be taking the position, filled for eight years by another Danbury enthusiast, Andrea Gartner.

“I look forward to building upon the recent successes within CityCenter Danbury and to further increase the positive momentum that is clearly visible throughout our downtown. I'm appreciative for the opportunity to work with the members of the CityCenter Board, staff, Downtown property owners and merchants, and residents to continue to make CityCenter Danbury the destination for business opportunities, arts and culture, dining and entertainment, and history buffs," said Prunty.

He returns from a year at Empire State College in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., where he served in the Office of the President in much the same way as he served Mayor Mark Boughton for five years. In 2010, Prunty was hired as community services coordinator at Danbury City Hall.

During his stint at City Hall he coordinated the Citizens' Government Academy, a three-month long seminar educating the citizens of Danbury on municipal services, along with working in conjunction with the Hispanic Center of Danbury to educate recent United States citizens about local government matters. He managed the S.A.V.E. program (Seniors Add Valuable Experience), working side by side with the United Way of Danbury to help seniors volunteer within City Hall to receive property tax credits. He raised more than $30,000 by organizing the annual Mayor's Cup to support the local education system.

Prunty also sat on several community Boards, representing the Mayor: the Underage Drinking Prevention Council, Stand Together Make a Difference (substance abuse awareness), and CityCenter Danbury.
