Zubatkin Announces 2022 ELT Award Recipient: Connie Jacklitsch

In its third year, the Erica Lindenbaum Tishman Award is presented annually to a person who demonstrates exceptional leadership skills, an interest in mentorship and developing peers, a passion for resolving a particular challenge, empathy towards others, and a commitment to community service. After careful review of many nominations, we are pleased to announce Connie Jacklitsch as the recipient of this year’s Award.

Connie has had a tremendous impact on every aspect of our firm and has been nominated every year since the awards program was established.  In her over 17 years at Zubatkin, she has led our Administrative Team and partnered with our Management Team to deliver the highest level of excellence for our clients.  She mentors and develops the support functions of Zubatkin as a key backbone of our business – making sure that nothing skips a beat across all of the varying demands and details that come up in our day to day operations.

Connie is also instrumental to promoting our family culture and values. Her compassionate leadership is recognized by all those who have worked with her.  She wears many hats – “advisor, counselor, coach, listener, or implementer of change” – depending on the situation at hand.  We are extremely fortunate to have her on our team.

As this year’s recipient, Connie has selected the Educational Alliance and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to receive a donation in her honor as part of the Award.  Please join us in congratulating Connie!

Buffalo AKG Art Museum to Reopen in May 2023

Buffalo AKG Art Museum to Reopen in May 2023

The newly renamed Buffalo AKG Museum will open to the public on May 25, 2023 – marking the completion of the institution’s transformative campus redevelopment and expansion project.  Designed by OMA’s Shohei Shigematsu, the scope includes a new, three-story gallery building and extensive renovations to the 1905 neo-Classical building by E.B. Green and 1962 modernist building by Gordon Bunshaft. Integral to the realization of the program is the creation of new connections and sensitivity to the historic landscape.  A transparent bridge will connect to the new OMA building, and a site-specific artwork, Common Sky,  by Olafur Eliasson and Sebastian Behmann of Studio Other Spaces creates a new community gathering space for the campus. Read more in the NYTimes and Buffalo News.

Zubatkin is honored to have the privilege of working alongside the Buffalo AKG Art Museum as a partner for this important project – supporting the initial feasibility and programming work, facilitating the design architect competition, and supporting the Museum across the design and construction phases.  Congratulations to the team on this announcement!

Poly Prep Hosts Ceremonial Groundbreaking and Press Event for New Arts Center

Poly Prep Hosts Ceremonial Groundbreaking and Press Event for New Arts Center

Last week Poly Prep Country Day School held a ceremonial groundbreaking and press conference on its Brooklyn campus to mark the early phases of construction for the PolyARTS Center.  Under the leadership of Head of School Audrius Barzdukas, this project is the culmination of more than 10 years of planning and fundraising.

The new 10,000 sf Arts Center will dramatically increase space for rehearsals, exhibition, teaching and community engagement, as well as improve connections between the School’s performance, visual arts, music, and dance programs.  When completed, the project will serve as a cultural and creative hub, and strengthen partnerships with the local Brooklyn arts community through Poly’s Arts Partnerships program.

Congratulations to the entire team at Poly Prep, Sage & Coombe, and Benchmark Builders on this exciting milestone!

Zubatkin’s Collaboration with Projects With Care Highlighted on CBS News

As an extension of our commitment to serving the not-for-profit sector, our staff engage in a variety of community service initiatives throughout the year.  Since 2015, we’ve participated in Project First Day, a special program that connects children in need with supplies and an outfit for school.  Our staff have prepared and donated over 100 backpacks – an effort that brings a lot of energy to the office each Summer as we personalize each bag to the individual student’s interests and needs.

CBS featured the amazing work of Projects With Care in a recent news segment.  The story also includes an interview with our very own Jason Zubatkin and Larissa Albert!  Check out the story here.
