AEC is very excited to welcome Ramandeep Kaur, our new director of operations! She succeeds Phoebe Irwin, who spent nearly five years supporting AEC’s work until her departure for the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh in September 2018.
Ramandeep started her career as a software engineer in Mumbai, India, where she worked on designing and maintaining financial reports using business intelligence tools. After nearly a decade in technology, she left her job in 2015 to pursue a career in the arts. “I’m very excited about arts education in general,” Ramandeep says. “It’s very important to get exposed to the arts at a young age.”
Ramandeep is a May 2018 graduate of the Master’s in Arts Management program at Indiana University Bloomington. While there, she worked as a marketing research and events assistant with the University’s Arts & Humanities Council. She also spent time during graduate school as a research assistant focusing on the impact of the arts in higher education, using her technology background to assist with data analysis and survey design. She and her husband moved to Pittsburgh in August of 2018.
AEC looks forward to working and growing with Ramandeep as we make the arts central to learning. For more information, check out her staff page. Please join us in welcoming Ramandeep Kaur to AEC!
