Weber School Associate Head of School Paul Ginburg took on the role of chief advancement officer Feb. 1.
In that position, Ginburg leads the Jewish high school’s development and fundraising efforts, building on relationships he has formed over 18 years with the school. Ginburg, the parent of three Weber alumni, also will launch a program in alumni relations.
“Throughout the life of the Weber School, Paul Ginburg has earned the abiding respect and affection of generations of Weber students, parents, faculty and staff and multiple members of our board,” said Rabbi Ed Harwitz, Weber’s head of school. “I deeply appreciate him assuming these new responsibilities at this important time for our high school.”
Ginburg said he welcomes the chance “to help develop the financial support to help meet the needs of our growing school.”
The Weber School’s enrollment has reached a record 241 students.
The school also has hired Vanessa Leibowitz as its chief financial officer. She was the CFO at the Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee, where she oversaw the financial and administrative operations of Federation, the Community Foundation and the Akiva Day School.
“Ms. Leibowitz’s impressive background in organization, finance and management and deep knowledge of the Jewish day school environment uniquely position her to serve the various needs of the Weber community,” Rabbi Harwitz said.
“Weber’s recent growth, in both enrollment and academic offerings, is truly impressive,” Leibowitz said. “I look forward to helping the high school achieve even greater levels of success.”
