ASC hires fundraising executive

The Arts & Science Council has filled a key leadership slot with the naming of Amy Tribble as its vice president of resource development.

Tribble, who more than 15 years of fundraising experience, comes to the ASC from Charlotte's Council for Children's Rights, where she has been the director of development. She starts the ASC job Feb. 14.

Tribble will manage the planning and execution of all the ASC's fundraising efforts, including the annual campaign, endowment drives and other campaigns supporting culture in Charlotte.

Tribble is a native of St. Louis. She earned a bachelor's degree in American studies, art history and nonprofit management at Salem College in Winston-Salem. She pursued graduate studies in art history at Washington University in St. Louis.

Tribble is president of the Charlotte chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

Before moving into fundraising, Tribble worked as docent coordinator at the Mint Museum; curator of education and programs at the Levine Museum of the New South; and gallery manager at The Penland Place. She has taught art history as an adjunct instructor at Winthrop University, Queens University of Charlotte, UNC Charlotte and Central Piedmont Community College.

"The combination of her development career and demonstrated passion and commitment to the cultural sector makes (Tribble) a unique and strong addition to our organization," ASC president Scott Provancher said in a statement.
