[St. Petersburg, FL – 6 February 2023] The Florida Holocaust Museum (FHM) is pleased to announce the appointment of Carl Goodman as President & CEO. Goodman comes to the Museum after 34 years at Museum of the Moving Image (MoMI) in New York City.
Goodman, who had served as MoMI Executive Director since 2011, was introduced for the first time to more than 600 FHM supporters at the annual To Life gala on Saturday evening.
“The Florida Holocaust Museum’s powerful storytelling, public advocacy, and educational programs make them a unique institution, and I’m excited for my next chapter there,” said Goodman.
Goodman, who began his MoMI career as an educator, tripled annual attendance during his tenure as Executive Director while securing millions in public and private funding. He also chaired the New York City Cultural Institutions Group, a coalition of 31 cultural organizations, from 2016–17.
Search Committee Chairwoman Alexandra Band remarked: “One of The Florida Holocaust Museum’s primary mandates is finding innovative and interesting ways to engage and educate new generations about the history of the Holocaust. Carl’s multimedia expertise will be a major asset as we continue to create the future of Holocaust remembrance.”
“We’re happy to welcome Carl to The Florida Holocaust Museum at a pivotal time,” said FHM Board Chair Mike Igel. “The museum and the lessons we teach have never been more relevant. As we continue to honor Holocaust victims and survivors and lead the battle against antisemitism in Florida and beyond, Carl has the perfect blend of experience and expertise to keep the Museum at the forefront of our field. Our future remains bright.”
