Americans for the Arts, the nation’s leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts and arts education, is pleased to announce that Alessandra DiGiusto, chief administrative officer at Deutsche Bank, has been elected to its Board of Directors as of June 18. Diving into service, she recently served as a featured speaker at the release of the BCA National Survey of Business Support for the Arts. Deutsche Bank was 2007 BCA 10: Best Businesses Partnering with the Arts in America honoree, and was inducted into the BCA Hall of Fame in 2008.

 

“We are thrilled that Ms. DiGiusto is joining our Board of Directors,” said Bob Lynch, President and CEO of Americans for the Arts. “Her leadership at Deutsche Bank, the Arts and Business Council and with the arts community in New York shows a commitment to the arts locally and a true understanding of the vital role they play in communities across the country.”

Alessandra DiGiusto has held the positions of chief administrative officer and director of Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation since 2003. She oversees DB Fine Art Americas and the grantmaking activities for the Foundation responsible for all marketing, public relations, legal, compliance, operations, financial and tax planning. She also manages the art sponsorships and grantmaking for the Americas.

Ms. DiGiusto was managing director and head of the Marketing Group of Deutsche Bank Private Wealth Management in the U.S. She created and managed the department responsible for all brand strategy, internet development, public relations, communications, events, consumer research, database marketing and segmentation programs. She also co-developed the signature Wealth with Responsibility program overseeing the philanthropic and family advisory relationships. Prior to this position, she supervised the integrated marketing unit for DB Alex. Brown Brokerage and Private Banking and was head of Global Business Development at Bankers Trust Private Banking. Prior to joining Bankers Trust, she was a vice president at Citicorp Investment Services and was also a vice president at Citibank's Consumer Bank responsible for affluent segment marketing. Previously, she worked at Shearson Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch.

Ms. DiGiusto received a B.A. from Oberlin College and an M.B.A. in finance and marketing from the Stern School of Business at New York University. She is the recipient of the Citibank Service Excellence Award, Oberlin College Outstanding Alumni Service Award, and the Deutsche Bank Diversity Leadership Award. She is a board member of the Bronx Museum and serves on Deutsche Bank’s Steering Committee for Women. She formerly was a board member of Greenhope Services for Women, the West Side YMCA, and the Arts and Business Council of New York, as well as former Executive Member of the Financial Women’s Association. She also served on the Executive and the Admissions Advisory Boards for Oberlin College.

 

On behalf of Americans for the Arts, The pARTnership Movement extends a hearty welcome to Ms. DiGiusto and looks forward to many forthcoming years of collaboration.
