NORWALK, Conn. -- Two prominent Norwalk residents have joined the Board of Trustees of a Norwalk historic museum.

Branding strategist Gail H. Candlin and former state legislator Lawrence F. Cafero Jr. will serve as trustees of the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum, a National Historic Landmark.

“It is both an honor and a pleasure to serve as a trustee. We are so fortunate to have this national landmark in our city and state,” said Candlin, “I look forward to helping increase regional community support of this educational and cultural treasure.” 

A 25-year veteran of the fashion accessories and luxury goods industry, Candlin is an accomplished innovator in brand strategy, licensin, and product development. She served as president of many elite brands. 

Candlin Consulting was formed in 2008, allowing her to provide company executives insight to improve performance and profitability. She resides in both New York City and Norwalk. 

A lifelong resident of Norwalk, Cafero was a member of its board of education for six years and left when elected to the state House of Representatives in 1992. 

He served as State Assemblyman (R-Norwalk) from 1993 to 2015 and during his last four terms he was elected House Republican Leader by his colleagues.

“The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum is a historic treasure. To have the opportunity to play a part in its preservation and future is an honor and a privilege, ” Cafero said.

He currently has his law practice, Cafero Law and Strategies, LLC in Norwalk and serves as the Executive Director and General Counsel for the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of Connecticut, Inc.

He lives in Norwalk with his wife Barbara, where they raised their three children, Jacqueline, Christopher and Nicholas.
