Anne Norton has always welcomed the opportunity to explore and grow. She learned development from the ground up, by serving in the higher education, healthcare and arts sectors, where she advanced to the role of Chief Development Officer in the latter. Anne has worked in development in both the US and the UK, where she adjusted not only to a new culture but also to a development field that was markedly different from that of the States. Through her adventures she discovered a great deal about herself and the profession, and believes that knowledge has prepared her well for her role as Search Director at LOIS L. LINDAUER SEARCHES (LLLS).
Anne was first exposed to the importance of donors in her role overseeing the education programs at The Wang Center for the Performing Arts in Boston. There, she worked closely with both the development and marketing departments and discovered a true propensity for both. Interested in working abroad, Anne utilized her experience with the arts to land a development position with English National Opera in London, where she managed most of the fundraising team, as well as the operations for the department.
To broaden her skillset, Anne then accepted a position with King’s College London, adding higher education and healthcare to her resume by working with faculty and physicians for the first time. It was at King’s College that Anne felt she truly surpassed the learning curve of fundraising, and she returned to the States to join the Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) as its Director of Development and Marketing, and, ultimately, the Director of Institutional Affairs.
After successfully implementing staff structure and consistent processes at the BCA, Anne moved on to the world of executive search at LOIS L. LINDAUER SEARCHES. She finds it a natural progression of her professional growth to transfer her skill at building strong teams to placing the right candidates with her clients. Her broad multi-sector background and international experience allows her to serve arts, higher education and healthcare prospects with confidence and expertise. Recent clients include the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, Duke Health, Northwell Health, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Babson College, Trinity Church in the City of Boston, the Culinary Institute of America, and Berea College.
Anne received a Bachelor’s degree in English/Writing from Fairfield University and a Master’s degree in Children’s Media from Emerson College.
