DANBURY, Conn. – Danbury resident Mary Margaret Walsh has been named the new director of development at The Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County (CAFC).
Walsh comes to CAFC with over 20 years’ experience in the corporate, not-for-profit and entrepreneurial arenas. She joins CAFC at an exciting time as the organization has grown to serve a membership of more than 225 nonprofit arts and cultural organizations and creative businesses, and more than 120 individual artists, all located within Fairfield County.
She worked for more than 14 years at Chase Manhattan Bank where she served as a vice president, and was responsible for marketing to women and multicultural communities, new business development and community development programs. She also served as the president of MMW associates, a strategic planning and social media marketing consulting firm in Danbury, with a client list that included the Ridgefield Playhouse, the Palace Theatre Danbury (members of CAFC) and Bridgewater Associates. She has also served as a director of the Bank of Fairfield.
A Danbury resident, Walsh has donated her time and expertise to the Fairfield Foundation for Education, the Fairfield Rotary and the Fairfield University Alumni Association. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Fairfield University and was a recipient of the Loyola Medal for her service to developing arts and culture on campus.
An actress, cellist and longterm volunteer at the Palace Danbury, Walsh says she is “…thrilled to be able to combine my passion for business with my life-long artistic interests and serve an organization like the Cultural Alliance that exists at the crossroads of these two exciting areas.”
Based in Norwalk, the mission of the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County is to support the cultural organizations, artists, individuals and creative businesses of the region by providing promotion, services and advocacy.
