The Friends of Schlitz Audubon Nature Center Board of Directors has appointed Nathan Smallwood as executive director of the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center. Nathan will be replacing Elizabeth "Buffy" Cheek, who is retiring after 19 years of service to SANC and its community of supporters.
"We wish Buffy all the best in her retirement, and thank her for making the center one of the best in the country," Margarete Harvey, Board president said in a news release.
Nathan comes to SANC from the Taft Museum of Art in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he has been the director of institutional advancement. In that position, he oversaw all fundraising for the museum and managed the marketing department including membership, public relations, web, publications and outreach materials. During his tenure, he has obtained some of the largest operating gifts in the museum's history.
"Nathan brings exceptional executive, fundraising, communications and strategic management skills with him and we believe these skills, along with his collaborative approach to management, make him a great fit for this position," Harvey added.
