Introducing Louise Bertini as the Next ARCE Director for Egypt

Reaching around the globe, DRworked with the American Research Center in Egypt to find Louise Bertini as the next ARCE Director for Egypt.

returning client, DRrecently worked with The American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) to find their current Executive Director and Director of DevelopmentARCE 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.

As part of its rapidly expanding impact, ARCE was in need of a full-time, regionally based Director for Egypt. The ARCE Director would not only have to be an expert on all things relating to Egyptian archaeology, but also be a confident and capable representative for ARCE’s extensive activities. Among many qualified experts, Louise’s expertise stood out. Holding a Ph.D. in Egyptian Archeology, Louise served as a Professor of Egyptology at the American University in Cairo and has participated in over 20 archaeological digs, the majority being in Egypt. An ARCE member since 2003 and residing in Egypt for the last decade, Louise has worked with partners ranging from the State Department to PBS. Her experience as a spokesperson and recruiting partners will be essential for ARCE’s operations in Egypt.

It was a pleasure to work with ARCE once again and we wish Louise luck in her new role.
