The Minnesota Humanities Center Announces Interim President
The Minnesota Humanities Center (MHC) is excited to announce that Anne Hunter will be joining us as interim president.
With the recent retirement of MHC President and CEO David O’Fallon, a nationwide executive search is underway for MHC’s new president and CEO. During these next several months, Anne will bring an exceptional mix of nonprofit strategy experience and transitional leadership acumen to her role as interim president.
Anne is an education champion, nonprofit strategist, team-builder, and social entrepreneur with more than 20 years of experience in nonprofit strategy, marketing, transitional leadership, conflict management, resource development, program design and development, equity advancement, and more.
Currently, Anne leads HunterSage for Nonprofits, a national strategy group committed to building thriving, more equitable communities. Anne has also led curriculum development for the tech startup, Cambio Education, and marketing for both The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and the Minnesota Orchestra. A published author and former journalist, Anne has also taught at Hamline University, the University of St. Thomas, Metropolitan State University, and Gustavus Adolphus College. In addition, Anne serves on the boards of COMPAS and the Page Education Foundation.
The board of the Humanities Center is working with executive search firm Ballinger | Leafblad to conduct a nationwide search for the next president and CEO of our nearly 50-year-old Minnesota institution. It’s an exciting time, and we’re thrilled to have Anne on board to help us transition into this next phase of the organization.
