Senior Vice President for Finance, Strategy, and Operations at The Art Institute of Chicago
Andy Simnick, Senior Vice President for Finance, Strategy, and Operations at the Art Institute, is among Chicago’s emerging civic leaders. This Duke PhD graduate and former McKinsey consultant oversees strategic planning and resource management, ensuring the fiscal health and future of the city's world-class encyclopedic art museum. He constantly asks himself and his colleagues, “If we had one more hour or dollar, how can we get the most out of it?” He's used that question as a creative and collaborative springboard, since joining the museum in 2013, to transform strategic planning and operations through the power of applied data and analytics. Andy's fresh approach and insight are central to the Art Institute's unprecedented growth in museum revenue and visitor attendance and supporting its civic mission to educate and inspire new generations of Chicagoans and audiences from all around the world.
