Jocelynne Rainey, President & CEO

As Chief Administrative Officer and Executive Vice President for the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC), the not-for-profit corporation that manages and develops the Brooklyn Navy Yard as a nationally-recognized model urban industrial park, Dr. Rainey has been a key executive in the execution of a 100% corporate growth target over the next five years, leading the organization’s administrative, security, workforce development and human resource strategies incorporating over 240 staff members and a $15 million dollar budget.

Joining BNYDC in 2011 as the Vice President of Human Resources, Dr. Rainey quickly became interested in its Employment Center (EC), a cornerstone of its mission to create high quality employment opportunities for local residents. Dr. Rainey’s interest stemmed from her conviction that employment is a vital tool for improving the quality of life for marginalized communities.
