Parrish Art Museum Director Mónica Ramírez-Montagut, Ph.D., has announced the appointment of Alexandra (Lexi) Robertson as the Parrish Art Museum Director of Finances and Administration as of May 15. Continuing her career at the Parrish following recent positions at BRIC Arts and the New York City Opera, Robertson brings three decades of financial leadership and management experience to her new role.

“I have been a fan of the Parrish since its days in Southampton Village and it has been exciting to see its growth as it moved to its gorgeous site in Water Mill,” said Robertson. “I welcome the opportunity to be part of this important institution.”

“We are delighted to have Lexi Robertson join the dedicated team at the Parrish,” said Ramirez-Montagut. “With a successful track record working with major nonprofit boards, stakeholders, and staff to identify excellence in each organization and streamline financial structure, we look forward to her applying that expertise to best serve the mission of the museum.”

Robertson’s background in nonprofit finance covers the spectrum of fiscal responsibilities. Most recently, as CFO for 10 years at BRIC — Brooklyn’s leading presenter of free cultural programming — she generated yearly budgets including a three-year program plan to launch the renovated media and arts center when it reopened in 2013 and oversaw strategic planning and a budget that doubled from $8M to $16M+ as the organization expanded.

At the New York City Opera in her role as budget manager, Robertson devised financial forecasts and strategic planning proposals as the organization redefined itself outside of Lincoln Center, developing adaptable financial models including sensitivity analyses and cash flow documentation for risk minimization. As general manager of St. Ann’s Warehouse, she worked with the artistic director to budget and manage the organization’s relocation from its landmarked Brooklyn Heights building to new facilities in DUMBO — including the design and build out for the administrative offices and the stained glass studio.

Robertson has an MA in Arts Management from the City University of London, and BA from Connecticut College.
