NEW YORK, NY, November 14, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Lewis Carver Brindle with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Mr. Brindle celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Mr. Brindle, as founding director of Lewis Carver Brindle Arts Consultants in New York City, provided strategic fundraising and administrative expertise to arts organizations in the United States and Europe. A distinguished career in these fields that spans more than three decades, Mr. Brindle was affiliated with New York University (NYU), where he served as director of the George H. Heyman, Jr. Center for Philanthropy and Fundraising and was founding director of the Alberto Vilar Global Fellowship in the Performing Arts, an interdisciplinary graduate program where applicants competed regionally against those in other artforms before an eminent panel of selectors. The regional winners competed at NYU to receive one of the six generous fellowships awarded annually which provided full graduate tuition, housing, travel and a stipend as well as ample performance opportunities both as soloists and in collaboration with the other Fellows.
Mr. Brindle began his career in development at Union Theological Seminary in New York as assistant to the vice president for development. The following year, he was appointed executive assistant to the president and secretary to the board of directors, the posts he held for the remainder of his time there.
Mr. Brindle joined NYU as a director of foundation relations in the Office of University Development for several years. Finding it difficult to leave the beach, he accepted an offer to become the director of development for the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, NY, but when he was asked returned to NYU as a director of development for the Graduate School of Arts and Science and for the College of Arts and Science.
While at NYU, Mr. Brindle was honored to have worked closely with Naomi Levine, a highly respected leader in this field. With the guidance of Mrs. Levine, he initiated the Vilar Fellowship in the Performing Arts and together they designed the graduate program in fundraising and philanthropy for the Heyman Center, which was then one of only three offered in the United States.
Mr. Brindle earned a Bachelor of Science in Education, magna cum laude, in 1975 from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and a Master of Music in vocal performance from Boston University in 1978. As an undergraduate, Mr. Brindle performed the leading tenor role in all the fully-staged operas presented. He continued to perform as a soloist in operas and choral works during graduate school and apprenticeships at the Banff Centre for the Arts and the Lake George Opera Festival and as a freelance singer in Boston and New York.
When he stopped singing professionally, Mr. Brindle sought ways to bring his experience in the arts to his new career in fundraising and university administration. Whether producing a choral concert of contemporary religious music for the Seminary, mentoring the Vilar Fellows for the interdisciplinary performances he organized for them, or simply discussing a recent opera performance with a group of museum volunteers, his earlier musical study and experience on stage seemed often to provide structure and richness.
In recognition of outstanding contributions to his profession and the Marquis Who's Who community, Lewis Carver Brindle has been featured on the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement website. Please visit www.ltachievers.com for more information about this honor.
