Introducing ARCE’s Director of Development Laura Rheintgen

DRwas happy to identify Laura Rheintgen as ARCE’s Director of Development.

A returning client, DRrecently worked with The American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) to find their current Executive Director. ARCE was formed in 1948 by a consortium of American educational and cultural institutions to assist American scholars conducting research in Egypt. Since 1993, it has expanded its role and worked in close collaboration with the U.S. Agency for International Development and Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities to conserve dozens of monuments and train hundreds of local archaeologists and architectural conservators. During Egypt’s civil unrest, ARCE provided much-needed conservation equipment after the Institute d’Egypte was burned. Besides conserving vital cultural sites, ARCE strengthens Egyptian-American relations through close collaboration between scholars and conservationists. Though its work and partnerships, ARCE is committed to preserving an irreplaceable birthplace of human civilization.

Laura joins ARCE at an exciting time in its history as it prepares to celebrate its 70th anniversary in 2018. As ARCE’s Director of Development, Laura is required to maintain a network across multiple fields, including the academic, art, and historical sectors. High-profile research and cultural institutions, including the British Museum, the American University in Cairo, Princeton University, and the University of Notre Dame, are among ARCE’s members, and are utilized to recruit both support and visibility to ARCE’s endeavors. With its high-profile and extensive work, the next Director of Development of ARCE would need to be as dedicated as the organization.

Laura’s past experience would serve her well in this position. She possessed over 20 years of development experience, with the majority of it in prominent international organizations, including the Center for Strategic and International Studies, The European Institute, and the United States Institute of Peace. Her B.A. in German and International Studies from West Virginia University, along with her M.A. in International Affairs from American University, also gave her a thorough understanding of the issues ARCE confronts daily.

We wish Laura and ARCE luck in their vital work preserving the past for all future generations.
