Jackson, WY—The Board of Trustees of the National Museum of Wildlife Art of the United States is pleased to announce the appointment of Bill Friedeman as the new Chief Advancement Officer. The Board has taken this action in the fullest confidence that Friedeman will be an excellent steward of the mission of the National Museum of Wildlife Art. In his new role, he will be responsible for the Museum’s philanthropic initiatives.
Friedeman comes to the Museum from Sonoma, California, where he led an independent development consulting firm for 20 years. The firm advised nonprofit charitable organizations and donors on major gifts, annual fund, strategic development planning, campaign management, and board development. His seasoned experience as consultant, business principal, board member, and grantmaker form a unique blend of attributes extremely valuable to the Museum.
“We are elated, after an intense nationwide search, to have Bill on board at the Museum,” said Scott Kirkpatrick, the Chairman of the Board. “Bill brings with him a compelling understanding of all aspects of fundraising, an impressive rolodex, and a passion for our institution.”
Friedeman holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Administration from Hillsdale College, and has completed graduate course work in marketing at Bowling Green State University Graduate School of Business.
Bill and his wife Laurie have previously lived in Jackson and Wilson and are excited to be back in the valley. Their dog, Watson, joins them in this new journey.
