WILMINGTON — The local art museum has announced a group of executive commitee members who will help with oversight of Cameron Art Museum’s operations.

Five new board members to CAM’s board of trustees include Barbara Fitzsimmons, Robert Hickman, Kathy Lindenmayer, Jeffrey Schrager and Katharine Sullivan.

CAM noted in a press release that the new members add a “range of knowledge, from global to regional, and experience along with a keen love of art to work for CAM.”

Fitzsimmons is a lifelong educator who has taught students from preschool to graduate programs and has done educational consulting work. She has worked as a CAM docent and volunteered for its children’s programs. Fitzsimmons also helped launch the COVID Quilt Exhibition at the CAM, coordinated due to her membership with The Advocacy Project which allows marginalized women and children to tell their stories through quilts.  

Hickman is founder and president of clinical research consulting firm MedReach, LLC. He is an advocate for theatre and visual arts. He is a member of the the CAM Compass committee and recently served on the 60th anniversary gala committee.  

Committed to developing equity in the arts, Lindenmayer was a board co-chair at Support the Port and served on the board of Spectrum Dance Theater. She is the director of development for Memphis Music Initiative, and has help leadership roles at SMU DataArts and Grantmakers in the Arts, the latter of which had an increase in annual contributed income by more than 50%. 

Founder and managing partner of Schrager Capital Management, Schrager has 35 years of experience as a securities analyst and portfolio manager, formerly working for Gotham Capital and Bear Stearns. He is president of the Jeffrey Schrager and Anne York Family Foundation, vice president of Pie Lab Wilmington, and vice president of the Phillip and Terri Schrager Foundation. He has dedicated his community service and philanthropic work to improving educational opportunities for underserved youth, fighting bigotry and antisemitism, promoting food self-sufficiency, and supporting the arts.

Native of Wilmingtonian Sullivan graduated from Hollins University, with a degree in art history, and has a culinary arts degree from the California Culinary Academy. She has served on the board of trustees of Cape Fear Academy and The Children’s Museum of Wilmington’s Circle of Friends. Formerly, she co-owned The Salt Shaker Bookstore and Café and created Tabletalk Café.

“We are thrilled about the talent, experiences, and deep relationships to the community these new board members will bring to the museum,” CAM deputy director Heather Wilson said. “We are excited that they are joining our leadership team.”
