Christopher Gordon Joins TMA as Chief Financial Officer

August 29, 2017

TUCSON, ARIZONA (August 29, 2017) – The Tucson Museum of Art and Historic Block has named Christopher Gordon as Chief Financial Officer to replace Alan Hershowitz, who has retired after serving the museum for 4 years.

Gordon comes from the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, California, where he has been the Vice President of Finance since 2008.

He was an integral member of the management team that has strategically driven MOLAA from a “founder’s museum” to a self-sustaining operation. He also served as Interim Managing Director for nine months during a search for a new President and CEO.

“Christopher’s involvement in the strategic direction of MOLAA makes him an excellent fit for TMA and for our vision for the museum in the 21st century,” said TMA CEO Jeremy Mikolajczak. “We have so many initiatives directed toward the financial sustainability and growth of our museum that we need a CFO with his level of experience and drive. He is a great addition.”

Prior to joining MOLAA, Gordon was a vice president at the Robert Gumbiner Foundation in Long Beach, California, which founded MOLAA in 1996. He also held positions at the Ethnic Art Institute of Micronesia on the island of Yap, Micronesia, and was a Union State Manager for theatre companies in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Gordon will join TMA on September 5.
