The Toledo Museum of Art has announced the addition of two new staff members.
Anne Bennett has been named the Museum’s chief information officer and Joshua Hardman has been appointed director of protective services. The Toledo natives bring a wealth of experience from their respective industries, according to Carol Bintz, the Museum’s chief operating officer.
“Both Anne and Joshua bring a level of expertise that is very valuable to the Museum’s operations,” Bintz said. “We’re delighted that they’ve joined our team.”
Bennett, a graduate of the J. Warren McClure School of Information and Telecommunication Systems at Ohio University, began her career as a systems analyst at Westinghouse Electric Company in 1985. She joined The Andersons as a communications systems analyst in 1987 and climbed the ranks to become chief information officer there from 2011 to 2013. Bennett has also served on the boards of multiple philanthropic organizations, including the Sight Center of Northwest Ohio and the YMCA South Branch.
Hardman has been a law enforcement and security officer for the United States Navy for nearly 14 years. Previously, he was security manager at the Conrad Hilton Hotel in Indianapolis and most recently served as the national security operations manager for Job1USA. He is a graduate of the U.S. Army Military Police School and holds a bachelor’s degree in technical and security management from DeVry University. He is also a 2009 graduate of the U.S. Navy’s Center for Security Forces, Master-At-Arms “A” School, specializing in force protection, anti-terrorism, security and basic law enforcement tactics and training.
