ST. LOUIS, July 16, 2018 Mark Macinski has been promoted to assistant director for operations and security, the Saint Louis Art Museum announced today.

Macinski oversees the museum’s departments of building operations, engineering, and protection services. His promotion reflects a change in the museum’s management group that also included the promotion of Jeanette Fausz to assistant director for exhibitions and collections.

“This promotion recognizes Mark’s supervision of multiple departments and organizational functions, as well as his commitment to maintaining the safety and security of the museum and its visitors,” said Brent R. Benjamin, the Barbara B. Taylor Director of the Saint Louis Art Museum.

Macinski joined the museum as manager of protection services in 2002. In 2013, he assumed the additional responsibility for building operations. Macinski served on the museum team implementing the East Building expansion, and he helped oversee the renovation of the museum’s Farrell Auditorium and construction of the Grace Taylor Broughton Sculpture Garden.

Macinski received an undergraduate degree in business management from Maryville College and a master’s degree in business and organizational security management from Webster University.
