Worcester Art Museum Names Bafaro Jr. President of Board
Thursday, November 19, 2015
“Our four new Trustees will add a range of skills, ideas, and networks. With Sarah’s return, as well as Jim’s and Mark’s engagement, we are further strengthening our philanthropic reach while adding senior experience in not for profit oversight.” Matthias Waschek added “Malcolm’s wisdom as the former director of the MFA Boston will help us with the implementation of WAM’s 2020 Long Range Plan, which has four goals: Reinvigorate the Mission; Build the Board and Corporation of Tomorrow; Reach 200,000 Visitors by 2020; and Define the Path to Sustainable Mission," said Bafaro on the new Trustees.
Joe Bafaro Jr.
Joe Bafaro is taking over from outgoing President Catherine Colinvaux, who helped the board integrate the Higgins Armory collection, build institutional capacity and increase the Museum's visibility on a national level.
Bafaro has been a trustee since 2007 and in that role has been a big part helping the Museum manage the growth of its earned revenue in support of its long-term financial planning and wider institutional goals.
