DRiWaterstone is delighted to announce our placement of a Director of Development at the Chrysler Museum of Art, one of the most significant art museums in the Southeastern United States.
DRiWaterstone’s CEO Jennifer Dunlap previously partnered with the Board of Directors at the Chrysler Museum to recruit Director Erik Neil, who has led the institution since 2015. Under Erik’s direction, the Chrysler Museum has successfully expanded its fundraising program and made the decision to increase its investment in its professional fundraising team. The museum renewed its partnership with DRiWaterstone to identify a Director of Development to accelerate its growth and continue enhancing the visibility and success of its encyclopedic art collection, family-friendly events, Glass Studio, and more.
Today we recognize Heather Sherwin for becoming the Chrysler Museum’s Director of Development. Heather brings to the museum more than two decades of experience in fundraising, with a focus on arts and educational institutions. She most recently served as Vice President for Advancement at the Central Carolina Community Foundation, where she developed strategies to raise more than $22M. Heather previously served as Director of Principal Gifts at the Cleveland Museum of Art, where she designed new marketing strategies and helped complete a $350M capital campaign.
Congratulations to Heather and the Chrysler Museum of Art – we look forward to seeing their success together!
DRiWaterstone is pleased to announce the placement of the Vice President of Development at Council for a Strong America (CSA), a national non-profit that mobilizes unique and powerful voices to change debates about public policy investment in children.
DRiWaterstone partnered with CSA to identify a Vice President to design and execute a comprehensive fundraising strategy to secure and diversify financial support for the organization. The Vice President will serve on CSA’s executive team and will broaden the donor base to include more individuals, corporations, and corporate foundation grants to sustain and grow its work.
We would like to congratulate Jeanette Radford on becoming the new Vice President of Development at Council for a Strong America. CSA is a great fit for Jeanette’s background and areas of passion; she has previously worked at Year Up, DC College Access Program, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington. Jeanette brings a mix of skills to CSA, having fundraised from individuals, corporate, foundation, and government sources throughout her career.
We congratulate Jeanette and Council for a Strong America—we can’t wait to see what Jeanette will accomplish for CSA!
DRiWaterstone is pleased to announce the placement of a Director of Development at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, an organization founded in 1970 to support newly-elected Black officials which quickly evolved into America’s Black think tank.
DRiWaterstone partnered with the Joint Center to find a development leader to establish comprehensive fundraising strategies to achieve the Center’s-short- and long-term goals. The Director plays a key role in fostering direct relationships with individuals, corporations, and foundations, and helps to create the Center’s strategic plan.
Today we congratulate Roslyn Hannibal-Booker on becoming the Joint Center’s Director of Development. Roslyn has nearly two decades of development experience, with an emphasis on frontline fundraising. Most recently, she was Director of Development at the Immune Deficiency Foundation, where her responsibilities include both fundraising solicitations and donor relations. Much of her career has been fundraising for advocacy organizations, and prior to becoming a fundraiser, she had a career in social work focusing on disenfranchised individuals.
Congratulations to Roslyn and the Joint Center—we look forward to seeing their success together.
DRiWaterstone is excited to announce the completion of our search for a Station Manager at North Country Public Radio, a public radio station that consistently punches above its weight and touches lives far beyond the geographic reach of its transmitters.
DRiWaterstone’s COO Nancy Racette guided the complex institution—a member-supported NPR station owned by St. Lawrence University—through a methodical search process to identify the right leader. Working with both high-level university administrators and the talented NCPR staff, DRiWaterstone built a pool of non- and for profit media leaders who could sustain the station’s value to the campus, community, and country.
Today we announce that Mitch Teich will serve as the next Station Manager for North Country Public Radio. Mitch brings over 25 years of media and communications experience to NCPR, including leadership roles at public radio stations across the country. Mitch most recently served for more than a decade as Executive Producer and Co-Host of Milwaukee Public Radio’s Lake Effect, a celebrated weekday news magazine. Mitch previously served as News Director at Arizona Public Radio and as a reporter and producer for Minnesota Public Radio.
We congratulate Mitch and North Country Public Radio—we look forward to seeing their success together.
