Art Gallery of Ontario Appoints Tony Gagliano as New President
Tony Gagliano has been named president of the Board of Trustees of the Art Gallery of Ontario.
ONTARIO.- The Art Gallery of Ontario announced today that Tony Gagliano has been named president of the Board of Trustees effective this June. He succeeds Charlie Baillie, who held the post since 2002.

Executive chairman and CEO of St. Joseph Communications, Gagliano is also co-founder of Luminato, Toronto’s festival of arts and creativity. A member of the AGO Board of Trustees since 2003, he has served as a vice president of the Gallery since 2005, and has been a member of the campaign, executive and nominating committees. He also led an unprecedented fundraising effort in support of Transformation AGO, where 26 prominent families within the Italian-Canadian community contributed $13 million to the project. In recognition of their support, the iconic sculptural promenade on the AGO’s north facade was named Galleria Italia.

His support of the arts and cultural community in Canada includes a $10 million in-kind contribution through the St. Joseph Arts Partner of Choice initiative. Gagliano is actively involved in a number of organizations, including the Young Presidents’ Association, St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto Community Foundation and the Canadian Council of Chief Executives.

Gagliano has received numerous honours, including an Alumni Achievement Award from Ryerson University, the Words & Deeds Leadership Award from the CIJA and UJA Federation, and most recently, with Luminato co-founder David Pecaut, the Canadian Club of Toronto’s 2008 Canadian of the Year.

“Tony brings his considerable leadership experience and energy to the presidency of the AGO as it begins a new and already celebrated chapter,” says Matthew Teitelbaum, the AGO’s Michael and Sonja Koerner director, and CEO. “It was through the sustained guidance and counsel of AGO President Charlie Baillie that the AGO is so ably positioned today to meet the challenges of tomorrow. During his presidency, Charlie provided strong financial leadership, consistent governance oversight and exceptional leadership throughout the unprecedented success of Transformation AGO.”
