The Finger Lakes Museum’s Board of Trustees made a new appointment at its March 18th board meeting. Philip Lentini, of Penfield, who had been serving as the Museum’s Vice President for Advancement since late 2013, was elected to a seat on the board and appointed to the position of Executive Director.
He will be in charge of managing the Museum’s day to day business operations and will continue to direct its fundraising programs. He previously served nine years as a Vice President of the Rochester Museum and Science Center.
“We are pleased to have an experienced museum professional aboard to help move The Finger Lakes Museum project forward”, said Board of Trustees President John Adamski. “Our current focus is to complete the transformation of the Branchport Elementary School into the Museum’s Discovery Campus in order to begin programming there this spring. Phil is committed to making that happen.”
