CLEVELAND, OH.- The Cleveland Museum of Natural History has tapped two well-known corporate leaders to serve as co-chairmen of the fundraising campaign for the transformation of the Museum's campus in University Circle. Executive Director and CEO Evalyn Gates, Ph.D., has announced that A. Chace Anderson, the Museum's board president and a partner of CM Wealth Advisors, and Museum trustee James L. Hambrick, chairman, president and CEO of The Lubrizol Corp., will direct the Museum's first significant capital fundraising campaign in its 90-year history. The funds will renovate and expand the Museum in ambitious ways envisioned by Gates and the Board of Trustees, creating a place where Museum professionals, programs and physical space become an even greater resource to the community for science education.

Gates and the Board of Trustees have also named three individuals to serve as honorary chairs of the campaign. These community leaders all credit their careers in science to their early experiences at the Museum. Honorary co-chairs are Scott R. Inkley, M.D., of Chagrin Falls, a pulmonologist who became chief of staff and later CEO of University Hospitals of Cleveland; Bobbie Brown, Ph.D., of Chardon, president of The Louise H. and David S. Ingalls Foundation, who studied biological anthropology and taught anatomy at the Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine (Northeast Ohio Medical University); and Harvey Webster of Kirtland, a biologist and wildlife conservationist, a longtime staff member of the Museum who heads its Wildlife Resources Division.

"I am thrilled that these highly respected corporate and community leaders have committed to moving the Museum forward with the bold vision that the Board of Trustees and I have charted to transform this Museum into a true space of learning and inspiration," said Gates. "I am confident that this team will help us achieve our fundraising goals and enable us to make this ambitious and important project a success."

"Remaking and expanding a leading natural history museum is a rare opportunity for Northeast Ohio," said campaign co-chair James L. Hambrick. "I am delighted to help make a difference on this very important initiative for science education."

The goal of the capital campaign, which began a quiet phase of fundraising in September 2012, is to raise $125 million over a period of five to seven years. These dollars will fund a complete renovation of the Museum where laboratories that house the Museum's collections become integrated with galleries and accessible to visitors. Much of the Museum's labs are currently beyond public view. In the new campus design, created by Fentress Architects of Denver, visitors, and especially children and students, will see Museum curators and staff at work, engaging these young visitors with real science and encouraging them to think about careers in science. The new design aims to make science come alive and to help reverse a trend where fewer young people are pursuing science as careers.

The new design will also enhance how the Museum showcases the 5,000+ acres of natural areas it stewards as part of its conservation mission. Through the campus design and its emphasis on modeling the latest thinking in green building, the Thelma and Kent H. Smith Environmental Courtyard grows in size and more actively engages visitors in exploring and understanding the unique ecosystems of Northeast Ohio, as well as the Museum's work in conservation and sustainability. Education classrooms will be located directly off the courtyard, with access for students and teachers to move easily between indoor and outdoor learning areas and activities. The new campus design recognizes the importance of such hands-on learning and points to the historic role the Museum has played in inspiring each generation. Scientists who in their youth participated in Museum programs such as Future Scientists (now in its 50th year) credit their Museum experiences with sparking their professional interest.

"I am excited to be part of this effort that will create a wonderful environment that brings together curators and students," said Scott R. Inkley, M.D., campaign honorary co-chair. "Enabling young people to work with scientists will enhance their learning and stimulate their vision of a possible future working in science, which can help alleviate a national shortage of people trained in science."

The Cleveland Museum of Natural History, incorporated in 1920, is one of the finest institutions of its kind in North America. It is noted for its collections, research, educational programs and exhibits.

The Museum's collections encompass more than 5 million artifacts and specimens, and research of global significance focuses on 11 natural science disciplines. The Museum actively conserves biological diversity through the protection of more than 5,000 acres of natural areas. It promotes health education with local programs and distance learning that extends across the globe. Its GreenCityBlueLake Institute is a center of thought and practice for the design of green and sustainable cities.

Chace Anderson is a partner of CM Wealth Advisors in Pepper Pike, which he joined in 2005. A resident of Cleveland Heights, he began his career more than 35 years ago with Citibank in New York City and with the management consulting firm McKinsey & Company provided advice to financial services, industrial and not-for-profit firms in the areas of business strategy and organization. He subsequently became vice president and general manager of the international subsidiaries of the Cleveland-based healthcare company Invacare, and lived in Europe for six years in this capacity. Prior to joining CM Wealth Advisors, he spent 10 years with Linsalata Capital Partners, a private equity firm, pursuing mid-market acquisitions of manufacturing and service firms. Active in Cleveland's cultural community, he also sits on the boards of the Cleveland Institute of Music, Chautauqua Institution, Winous Point Marsh Conservancy, and the Musart Society of the Cleveland Museum of Art. He previously also served as chairman of the board of the Judson Retirement Community. He received his bachelor of arts degree from Yale College in 1975 and his M.B.A. from Harvard University in 1979.

James Hambrick, who is serving his first term as a Museum trustee, is chairman, president and chief executive officer of The Lubrizol Corporation, headquartered in Wickliffe, Ohio. A resident of Novelty, Hambrick joined Lubrizol as a co-operative education student in 1973 and was hired full time in 1978. He began his career in operations, holding a variety of positions of increasing management responsibility. Hambrick moved to strategic planning and development in 1988, focusing on mergers and acquisitions, as well as international business development in emerging markets. In 1998, he was named global business manager for engine additives and in April 2000, he was elected vice president of Asia Pacific based in Singapore. In this capacity, Hambrick also served on the company's joint venture boards in India, China and Saudi Arabia. He was elected president in January 2003, chief executive officer in April 2004 and chairman of the board in January 2005. He received a bachelor of science in chemical engineering from Texas A&M University in 1978. He is a member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and the American Chemistry Council. The Lubrizol Corporation, a Berkshire Hathaway company, is an innovative specialty chemical company that produces and supplies technologies to customers in the global transportation, industrial and consumer markets. Founded in 1928, Lubrizol has approximately 7,000 employees worldwide. Revenues for 2011 were $6.1 billion.
