As a former museum director and deputy director as well as one who has guided the advancement and fund-raising efforts of cultural and educational organizations, I am now pleased to make myself available to museums and other cultural and educational organizations seeking interim directors. Far from simply being a “place holder”, an interim directorship can provide a discrete time in an institution’s life in which a great deal can be accomplished. It is often a very fertile time for consolidation, planning, assessment and re-invigorated fundraising. It sends a strong message to staff in such a period that the interim has a comprehensive knowledge of the unique structures, workings and concerns of major nonprofits.
I have recently undertaken additional training specifically for interim directorships and turnaround efforts.
