The New Museum in New York announced that Regan Grusy has been appointed vice president of strategic partnerships. In this newly created role, Grusy will work with both corporate and foundation leaders on major partnerships. In the past, the institution has collaborated with organizations such as Nokia Bell Labs, Microsoft Kinect, and the Knight Foundation and has forged global partnerships to support artist residencies and other programming with foundations in countries such as Denmark, France, Turkey, China, and Greece.

“We welcome Regan back during this exciting period of growth for the New Museum, as we prepare to expand our facility and unveil the design this fall,” the institution’s director, Lisa Phillips, said in a statement. “Regan’s passion for the museum and experience in steering transformational projects makes her an ideal addition to our senior team.”

Grusy will return to the museum, which she previously worked at for nearly a decade, on September 4. She first joined the New Museum as director of development and was later promoted to director of institutional advancement, but she left in 2015 to join the Metropolitan Museum of Art as chief of staff of the Costume Institute. “It’s a great honor to rejoin the New Museum at such a pivotal moment,” Grusy said. “I’ve long admired how this visionary institution has charted new territory at every level, from programming to partnerships. I look forward to working closely with Lisa and the museum’s inspiring board, staff, and strategic partners to help realize every future ambition.”
