Amy Wallace, most recently director of philanthropy at New College Foundation, has joined The Hermitage Artist Retreat as its new development director following a national search. In addition to working closely with Sandberg, Wallace joins a team that includes Hermitage co-founder and program director Patricia Caswell, deputy director and operations manager Elizabeth Power, and executive assistant/program coordinator Michael Salimbene.
Prior to New College, Wallace worked in corporate financial services and human resources before transitioning to a career in nonprofit development and philanthropy. She is a member of the Association of Donor Relations Professionals and a member of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. Wallace graduated from the University of Maine with a bachelor’s degree in political science.
Emily Lane has also been named the Hermitage Artist Retreat's grants manager. Lane is a fourth-generation Floridian with a deep connection to the arts, and her career has included higher education, museums, and arts institutions, where she raised millions of dollars for arts, education, scientific and environmental projects, as well as capital campaigns. She spent nearly 15 years at Selby Gardens before starting her own consulting and grants practice.
