New York City-based Phillips Oppenheim has placed not-for-profit executive Jennifer Bernstein as president and CEO of The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG). Sarah James and Becky Klein led the assignment. Ms. Bernstein becomes the 10th leader of the 130-year-old institution following an extensive, nine-month, international search that included a diverse and wide range of prospects. To ensure a smooth transition between administrations, Ms. Bernstein will be working closely with J.V. Cossaboom, NYBG’s interim president and CEO. “I think I can speak for the staff in saying we are looking forward to working with an energetic and focused leader like Jennifer,” said Mr. Cossaboom.
