CRANSTON DIRECTOR OF ADMINISTRATION TO ASSUME NEW ROLE
AS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF CRANSTON HOUSING AUTHORITY

Director of Constituent Affairs Named to Serve as Director of Senior Services

CRANSTON, RI—Cranston Mayor Allan W. Fung today announced that top administrative official, Robert Coupe, will assume the role of Executive Director of the Cranston Housing Authority after serving more than two and a half years as the City’s Director of Administration. Fung also appointed a member of his staff, Jeffrey Barone, to serve as Director of Senior Services. Earlier this week, the appointment of Barone received unanimous approval from the Cranston City Council.

“I am pleased that two valued members of my administration will continue to serve the residents of the City of Cranston,” stated Mayor Fung. “I am confident that the Cranston Housing Authority and the residents of those facilities will benefit from the same operational, management, and financial oversight that Director Coupe brought to my administration.

“As Director of Constituent Affairs, Jeff Barone has helped the residents of Cranston address every conceivable type of question and concern,” continued Fung. “His compassion and commitment to helping others helped to make him a natural choice to serve the members of our Senior Enrichment Center.”

Coupe will be replaced by Robin Muksian, who will serve as Director of Administration. Ms. Muksian has extensive experience in municipal government, having served as Cranston’s Deputy Director of Administration from 2003 to 2006, Director of Administration 2009 to 2011 and Director of Administration in South Kingstown from 2007 to 2009. Most recently, she served as Director of Administration in Providence.

“I’m excited to welcome Robin Muksian back to oversee day-to-day operations of the City of Cranston and bring her wealth of experience, institutional knowledge, and management skills as we continue to move Cranston forward,” commented Mayor Fung. “Robin will hit the ground running and serve our city with passion and dedication backed up by her outstanding credentials and accomplishments.”

In addition to her experience in municipal administration, Muksian has extensive administrative experience in academia, having served as Executive Director of Operations for the Providence School Department, chair of the Humanities/Social Sciences Department and Assistant Provost at the New England Institute of Technology.

Muksian holds bachelor and master’s degrees from the University of Rhode Island as well as a Ph.D. in rhetoric and composition. When she’s not working, Muksian is a dedicated Penguin Plunger in support of the Rhode Island Special Olympics.
