Linda Archer (Not Pictured)
The Carolina Music Museum welcomes Linda Archer to our Board as our new Treasurer, replacing John Warner who was instrumental in helping to establish the museum. We thank John for his guidance, for setting up the financial systems that undergird the museum and for his thoughtful voice in our meetings.
Linda graduated from the University of Iowa with degree in Accounting, cemented her Southern bona fides when she received her MBA in Business from Clemson. She spent thirteen years with Dow Chemical/Dow Brands before moving to BMW where she has served as Department Manager Controlling in the Finance Department for twenty-four and a half years.
Making a difference in her community is a priority with Linda which explains her busy schedule in Greenville’s non-profit sector. Currently the Treasurer of the Warehouse Theatre, she has had a long association with this upstate professional theatre since 2003–she did take a year off–and has been the board President and Vice President.
Linda served on the Compass of Carolina board for seven year and held the Chair and Treasurer positions during her tenure. A Master Gardener, Linda currently holds the position as Second Vice President of the Greenville Master Gardener Association and has a keen interest in water gardening and, offers as proof, a KOI pond with 40 of these beautiful fish.
The museum looks forward to working with Linda Archer as we continue to build this first of its kind museum in the Carolinas!
