With the retirement of its chief operating officer, the Toledo Museum of Art is making several staff changes at the executive level.
Carol Bintz, who has been with the Museum for 25 years, will retire as chief operating officer on July 1. Three other employees have been promoted and will have some expanded duties formerly handled by the COO.
In announcing the changes, Museum Director, President and CEO Brian Kennedy praised Bintz’s service to the institution. “Carol Bintz has made an extraordinary contribution to the Toledo Museum of Art in all aspects of our administration, but especially in the building of our SANNA-designed Glass Pavilion, opened in 2006, in acclaimed efforts on energy sustainability – for example, TMA has 3,000 solar panels and frequently goes off the grid – and in steering the Museum’s finances so beneficially. Carol is a person of the highest integrity and competence.”
Kennedy added, “I have great confidence that our new leadership team, which has already done stellar work in recent years, will continue to advance the work and reputation of our much-loved art museum in Toledo and its splendid art collections.”
Amy Gilman, Ph.D., associate director of the Museum and curator of contemporary art, has been promoted to deputy director; Adam Levine, Ph.D., assistant director and associate curator of antiquities, has been promoted to associate director; and human resources director Lynn Miller has been promoted to assistant director. All appointments are effective July 1.
Gilman will oversee the Museum’s art collections, development, Mellon Fellowships and finance, while Levine will be responsible for brand marketing and communications, education and engagement, and information systems. Miller becomes responsible for protective services and facilities as well as oversees all aspects of people resources, including diversity and inclusion initiatives.
