We are so excited to share that Corey Behmer has joined the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council (MRAC) team as our new Director of Finance and Administration!
Hello! I am very honored to have been invited to be part of the MRAC organization and team.
Professionally, I have been leading finance, operations, human resources, and IT for over 10 years. I’ve had a lot of help along the way from mentors, leaders, and my teams! My broad-based knowledge and collaborative listening style make me effective at bringing together people and processes. I look forward to bringing my experience to the table with MRAC. I could go on, ad nauseum, about numbers and processes! The short version is that I began my career in the non-profit industry. After several years in the manufacturing industry, I realized that my heart was in non-profits. As a person who has a deep passion for personal and creative freedom, I feel extraordinarily lucky to have been given the opportunity to be a part of MRAC.
A little about me personally. I am an Asian American who was adopted as an infant from South Korea. I live just over the border from Minnesota in Prescott, Wisconsin. Having grown up partially in New England, this little river town brings a sense of nostalgia for some of the towns in Vermont. I grew up on the East Coast, moved to the San Franciso Bay Area after college, and then to the Midwest to Indianapolis prior to coming to the Twin Cities area. I have always had a deep appreciation and affinity for humanities and culture. I have been privileged over the years to have been able to observe and participate in art (in all its forms) and tie it directly to present day culture and history in many places around the world. My current passion is scuba diving, and I was most excited to be able to visit the underwater art installation in Mexico.
