About Brooklyn Academy of Music
The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) is where art and community intersect.
BAM is a multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, New York. For more than 160 years, BAM has been the home for adventurous artists, staff, audiences, and ideas—engaging both global and local communities.
With world-renowned programming in theater, dance, music, opera, film, and much more, BAM showcases the work of emerging artists and innovative modern masters.
As an institution, BAM is re-engaging its people – from artists to staff – in rediscovering collective joy through human connection and shared experiences. It is inviting its audiences to do the same while supporting ever-expansive, imaginative, and powerful programming.
Operating with an annual budget of approximately $50 million and over 600 staff, BAM has been recognized, nationally and globally, as one of the leading arts institutions championing innovation and experimentation.
Looking ahead, BAM will focus on honoring its legacy while continuing to evolve and innovate for the future. Under the leadership of its President, Gina Duncan, BAM will continue to build on its history with a vision for the future that emphasizes communal care for artists, audiences, and staff. This will prioritize deepening the organization’s engagement with its surrounding community in Brooklyn while continuing to expand its global reach and investing internally in BAM’s staff.
As BAM enters its next chapter, it seeks an exceptional Associate Vice President, Finance (AVP), who will serve as a leader of strategic and tactical aspects of BAM’s finance, accounting, and budget operations.
This is an extraordinary opportunity for a transformational leader to join a leading arts organization during a period of renewal. The AVP will play a key role in advancing BAM’s financial operations as the needs of the organization and the arts landscape continue to evolve.
Compensation & Benefits
Salary for the AVP role is currently anticipated to range from $160,000 to $190,000 commensurate with the candidate’s skills and experiences. Although BAM is targeting this range, we are open to feedback and would welcome the ability to connect with potential candidates who may be outside of the compensation band.
BAM offers comprehensive benefits, which include health, vision, dental and life insurance, disability protection, and up to 29 days of paid time off per year.
