President and Chief Executive Officer

Art Gallery of Hamilton

An ambitious, forward-looking organization and the third-largest independent public art gallery in Ontario, the AGH is home to one of the finest permanent collections in Canada: over 10,000 works of art, primarily Canadian historical, 19th–Century European, African, and contemporary holdings. Founded in 1914, the AGH has grown and developed along with the communities it serves. Located in a stunning, 87,000-square-foot facility in downtown Hamilton, the AGH delights audiences across southern Ontario and beyond Canada’s borders.

This is an opportunity to build upon a foundation of transformational growth and success. The next President and Chief Executive Officer will be a visionary leader who is passionate about engaging the public with arts and culture. Entrepreneurial and creative, you have a respected track record of executive leadership success that includes innovative programming, organizational growth, and enhanced reputation. You have developed positive relationships with governments and key stakeholders, and have established productive and inclusive networks, alliances, and partnerships around the world. You have built a culture of aspirational philanthropy, having participated in capital campaigns, major gift fundraising, and endowment building. A catalyst for growth and innovation, you will enhance public engagement with and support for this remarkable institution and its outstanding collection.
