Quinn of The Spec­ta­tor in new JCC role

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY JC RE­PORTER

IN HER first post since quit­ting as pub­lisher of The Spec­ta­tor mag­a­zine, Kim­berly Solomon Quinn has be­gun work as the chief fundraiser for Dame Vivien Duffield’s brain­child, the Jewish Com­mu­nity Cen­tre for Lon­don.

Mrs Quinn, who took the job of de­vel­op­ment di­rec­tor this week, at­tended the launch break­fast for the cen­tre held by Dame Vivien in Oc­to­ber 2003, which at­tracted many peo­ple not pre­vi­ously as­so­ci­ated with the An­glo-Jewish com­mu­nity.

Her ex­pe­ri­ence in­cludes fundrais­ing for the Royal Court Theatre and Great Or­mond Street Hospi­tal.

The for­mer mar­ket­ing di­rec­tor of the mag­a­zine group Conde Nast be­came a mem­ber of the JCC board in 2003.

Al­though she re­signed in De­cem­ber 2004 in ad­vance of me­dia cov­er­age of her re­la­tion­ship with the then Home Sec­re­tary, David Blun­kett, she was said to have re­mained a close sup­porter of the project and was happy to ac­cept the in­vi­ta­tion of JCC chief ex­ec­u­tive, Nick Viner, to re­join.

Mr Viner an­nounced two other new ap­point­ments this week.

Juliet Sim­mons is to be­come creative di­rec­tor. A for­mer ac­count di­rec­tor at ad­ver­tis­ing agency DLKW, she has been with the JCC since its in­cep­tion in 2004. She has chaired Lim­mud con­fer­ence and con­tin­ues to vol­un­teer for the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

For­mer South­bank Cen­tre project man­ager Kather­ine Sells has been ap­pointed project di­rec­tor. She led the re­de­vel­op­ment of the Royal Fes­ti­val Hall and did the same job for the Royal Al­bert Hall de­vel­op­ment. She takes charge of the con­struc­tion of the JCC’s build­ing in Hamp­stead.

Mr Viner said: “We now have a team of highly pro­fes­sional, top-notch in­di­vid­u­als with proven track records. This will al­low us to achieve even more as we de­velop some­thing ex­cep­tional.”
