New trustees at Bermuda National Gallery

Bermuda National Gallery is delighted to welcome Ian Hind, Cameron Snaith and Mitchell Klink to the Board of Trustees of BNG. These exciting new additions to the board bring a broad range of local and international experience in business, philanthropy and the arts, and we look forward to their support and expertise in continuing to develop the BNG's engagement with Bermuda's communities.

“As the Bermuda National Gallery continues to evolve, I am delighted to welcome, as Trustees, the enthusiastic engagement of Ian Hind, Cameron Snaith and Mitchell Klink whose combined experiences and skill sets will assist the Gallery in its mission to develop a greater appreciation of the arts as a necessity to the well-being of our community.” - Gary L. Phillips, Chairman

Ian Hind brings to the Bermuda National Gallery board over 20 years of experience and engagement with Bermuda's arts communities. He also brings an invaluable and comprehensive understanding of building, architecture and systems, all critical to the BNG's museum infrastructure and controls, through his accomplished career as an engineer, most recently as Senior Engineer for the City of Hamilton.

Cameron Snaith wears many hats in his business and philanthropic ventures and brings a deep entrepreneurial engagement to the board, coupled with a comprehensive understanding of the importance of the arts to community development.

Cam Snaith is the Co-Founder and Principal of Bleeker, a company that helps talented professionals create meaningful careers. Based in New York City, Bleeker is committed to guiding exceptional people towards mastery, growth, and impact through our diverse ecosystem. Over a thousand executives, entrepreneurs, artists, and athletes from around the world trust Bleeker to advance their most essential pursuits.

Outside of Bleeker, Cam was invited to join the prestigious MIT Media Lab in 2015 as a Research Affiliate in their Social Computing group (a lab creating sociotechnical systems that shape our urban environments). He is the Founder and Founding Chairman of Giving Opportunities To Others, a New York City-based not-for-profit organization that enriches the lives of promising, underprivileged middle school students by immersing them in art and music and has raised millions of dollars since it's founding in 2001. He built and operated this charitable organization on nights and weekends while working in New York City as a marketing professional.

As a marketer, he's worked at the global headquarters of both PepsiCo and the National Basketball Association and before that, he spent time working in advertising and talent agencies in New York City. Cam is a mentor to Olympic athletes through the United States Olympic Committee's Athlete Network, to entrepreneurs and artists in the NEW INC incubator, and to Princeton University undergraduates through Princeton Internships in Civic Service. Cam also proudly serves as a Director on the Butterfield & Company Board and a Director on the Ignite entrepreneurial accelerator, both in Bermuda.

He received his BA in English from Princeton University in 2000 and MS in Strategic Communication from Columbia University in 2010.

Mitchell Klink has a rich background in the arts through his work with museums, galleries, artists and collectors, and brings a wealth of knowledge around contemporary art and programming to the BNG Boards and committees.

Mitchell Klink has recently moved to Bermuda from Atlanta, where he led tours and gallery talks as a docent at the High Museum for over 10years. Through his educational, personal and professional travels, Mitchell is engaged with museums, galleries, artists, collectors in Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York, London, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Mitchell has advised private collectors, emerging artists, and arts institution leaders; enjoys collecting contemporary paintings and drawings; and draws and paints a bit, too.
