Gail has a new job.
I am writing to inform you of the appointment of Gail Dinter Gottlieb as the Executive Director of the American Society for the University of Haifa (ASUH). Gail comes to us with a wealth of experience in fund raising and non-profit leadership, especially in higher education. She served, most recently, as President and Vice-Chancellor of Acadia University in Nova Scotia. She successfully completed there a $55M capital campaign – the largest in Acadia’s 139-year history – and took that Institution to a ranking of # 1 of undergraduate programs in Canada. She holds the distinction as the first woman and the first Jewish president in the history of that University.
Gail has also served as Dean of Dyson College of Arts and Sciences at Pace University; Dean of the Faculty of Natural and Social Sciences and Professor of Biology at State University of New York, Buffalo; Associate Provost for Undergraduate Studies and Professor of Bioscience and Biotechnology at Drexel University in Philadelphia; and Director of Science at the American International School at Kfar Shmaryahu in Israel. She brings a wealth of impressive accomplishments in each position and a record of illustrious service and scholarship throughout her career. She holds a PhD from the Weizmann Institute as well as recognition as a “Top 50 Atlantic CEO” from Atlantic Business Magazine.
Needless to say, we are thrilled to have found Gail and look forward to a time of much growth and progress for ASUH under her leadership. I want to thank the members of the search committee (Bettina Kurowski, Brian Lurie, Ada Spitzer, and Janet Spitzer) for their dedicated and careful work as well as Warren Gleicher for his invaluable assistance in solidifying the appointment.
Please join me in welcoming Gail to the ASUH family. You can reach her at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to many rewarding years together as we work to support this great and well-deserving University in Haifa.
