Bonne chance!

Welcome and bienvenu to Paul Bessire, a borough son who is coming home as deputy director for development at the Brooklyn Museum. Our pal Paul begins his tenure this month.

It took some time and a lot of searching, but in the end, this prodigal boroughite was chosen, and management at Brooklyn’s house of art couldn’t be happier.

“We are delighted that Paul Bessire will join our team,” said Arnold Lehman, museum director. “Paul’s experience on behalf of art museums will serve to further increase and strengthen our fund-raising capacity in all areas.”

Yup, it was cheers all around for Paul, who got more than one “atta-boy” for his distinguised career up to this point.

“With more than 25 years of successful fund-raising, Paul brings outstanding experience to the position,” said John Tamagni, chairman of Brooklyn’s Board of Trustees.

Prior to his current gig, Paul served as director of Marketing for the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

Standing O says “Welcome home and welcome aboard.”
