Columbus Museum of Art
Interim Executive Director

The Work

As interim executive director, Terri led the museum in the wake of its long-tenured executive director’s retirement.  Working closely with the Board President and the Senior Team, Terri ensured the institution’s ongoing critical work continued without interruption including the launch of the museum’s first-ever labor negotiations, two senior team planning retreats including one focused on financial initiatives, a major fundraising event, installation and de-installation of exhibitions, the announcement of the new executive director, an onboarding plan for the executive director, and an initial strategy and case statement for a fundraising campaign. 


“We couldn’t have managed this transition without Terri’s calm, steady and skillful leadership. She met our team where it was, and in her quiet, intentional, and collaborative manner created the focus and space for staff to do its best work, all key to positioning CMA and its new executive director/CEO for success.”

~ Pete Scantland, President, Board of Trustees, Columbus Museum of Art

“I am grateful to Terri and the senior team for their flexibility and support during the CMA leadership transition period – their guidance and expertise have been instrumental in ensuring a smooth handover.”

~ Brooke A. Minto, Executive Director and CEO, Columbus Museum of Art
