“Wexner Center hired David on two pivotal occasions, in 2010 and 2018. First, on the occasion of the Wexner’s 20th anniversary, David authored a qualitative and quantitative study benchmarking Wexner against 20 contemporary art center peers across the country, whether independent/free standing or university based. David presented his work to the Ohio State Board of Trustees, dramatically raising the profile of the Wexner Center among campus influencers and creating invaluable context for the successful $60 million Wexner campaign that followed, including its 8-figure lead gift. In 2018, he advised the Wexner Center Foundation Board, the Ohio State Provost, and the search committee on the Center’s first Director search in 25 years. David worked closely with the trustees on the selection of the executive search firm and helped guide the overall recruitment process to superb fruition. David’s expertise was a crucial factor in the success of this major generational transition. “
