Miami Art Museum names Chief Financial Officer
John Safranek was vice president and chief financial officer of the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts.
MIAMI, FL.- Miami Art Museum (MAM), a leading museum of modern and contemporary art located in Miami, FL, has named John Safranek chief financial officer. Safranek, a non-profit executive with more than 15 years of experience in financial management and accounting, joins the Museum after serving as vice president and chief financial officer of the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts.

Safranek’s appointment comes as vertical construction progresses on MAM’s new Herzog & de Meuron-designed building in Downtown Miami’s Museum Park. Safranek will oversee finance, operations, human resources and IT.

“Adding a strong chief financial officer with local roots will be an invaluable asset as Miami Art Museum begins preparing to relocate to our new home in Museum Park,” said MAM Director Thom Collins. “John’s experience overseeing operations for successful non-profits positions MAM well for its move in 2013.”

Safranek brings with him unique skill sets, having managed various financial and management aspects of large cultural institutions. As CFO of the National Advancement in the Arts, he provided overall financial leadership, managing investment activities, financial policies/controls, budget and accounting. Prior to that position, he was director of finance and human resources for the Miami City Ballet, where he supervised financial management, prepared the annual budget and implemented asset control policies.

In addition, Safranek dedicates time to the community through his role as board member of the Everglades Association and grant panelist for the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs.

Safranek has a master’s degree in finance from Florida International University and bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Florida.
