Susan Gladstone has been appointed as the new director for the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU. Gladstone brings more than 30 years of executive experience at the national and global levels. In her most recent leadership positions she served as the museums acting director, and before that as the museums director of development.
We look forward to Susan Gladstone leading the next era of the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU, said FIU Provost and Executive Vice President Kenneth G. Furton. Her proven track record of leadership combined with her educational, cultural and fundraising initiatives on the international stage, made her the ideal leader to steer this museum, which has served as a cultural beacon for more than 20 years.
Gladstones career has led her to excel at the highest levels of expertise in creating and managing multi-million dollar budgets, fundraising, and the cultivation of sponsorships, donors and major gifts.Some examples of her leadership experience include serving as Director of VeritageMiami where she spearheaded fundraising efforts for this United Way of Miami-Dade program.
As a lifelong member of the Jewish Community in Miami, and the daughter of a rabbi who championed the importance of acceptance and tolerance, I applaud FIU for its commitment to educating students about the diverse cultures that make this mosaic our home.
