CHICAGO, IL.- The Richard H. Driehaus Museum announced today that Anna Musci has been appointed as the Museum’s Executive Director, effective May 1, 2021. Musci joined the Museum in 2016 holding multiple positions including Director of External Affairs, and since January 2020 has served as the Museum’s Interim Executive Director. Incoming Board president Zachary Lazar, a Senior Vice President and Regional Director-Midwest for Capital Group Private Client Services in Chicago, has been a Trustee of the Museum since July 2019, and also served as the chair of the Board’s Finance Committee. Lazar steps into this role following the death of Richard H. Driehaus, the Museum’s founder, in early March 2021.

“We are so delighted that Anna has accepted the position of Executive Director of the Driehaus Museum,” said Zach Lazar, President of the Museum’s Board of Trustees. “When Anna took on the interim role in early 2020, none of us knew what lay ahead. As the pandemic forced the closure of our building and the interruption of our long-scheduled programming, Anna very effectively led the Driehaus Museum team in adapting to the changed circumstances, bringing forward a series of virtual programs that were both smart and fun, while working out the logistics to support our reopening. More recently, with the loss of Mr. Driehaus, Anna has been instrumental in working to support our celebrations of his life and legacy, of which the Museum is a major part. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I want to thank Anna for her outstanding leadership.”

Anna Musci came to the Driehaus Museum after a career engaged in building new businesses in banking and wealth management and advising private clients, family offices, nonprofit organizations, and corporations in wealth accumulation and estate planning strategies, including as a financial advisor for UBS Financial Services and Oppenheimer & Company; and as business development and client service strategy liaison to investment banking, private banking, and lending divisions of Alex. Brown & Sons and LaSalle Bank.

A lifelong Chicagoan, Musci has a demonstrated interest in giving back to her communities: she is a sustaining member of the Junior League of Chicago, where she has held numerous advisory, committee chair, and board positions; a member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals; past Committee Chair for Chicago’s Old Town Art Fair; past Board member of Famous Door Theatre Company; past Advisory Board member of Chicago Lights tutoring program; and Recording for the Blind volunteer. Musci holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from St. Mary’s College of Notre Dame, Indiana and Rome, Italy.

Zachary Lazar is a Senior Vice President and Regional Director-Midwest for Capital Group Private Client Services. Lazar leads the company’s team of wealth management professionals in Chicago and the Midwest Region. He and his team work directly with a select group of high-net-worth individuals and families to create customized plans for protecting and growing their wealth, often across multiple generations. In addition, Lazar helps nonprofit foundations and endowments to pursue their long-term financial objectives through effective planning and investment management.

Prior to joining Capital Group Private Client Services in 2017, Lazar was the Head of Market Development & Wealth Planning at William Blair & Company in Chicago. He previously served as President of the Illinois and Florida Regions for BMO Financial Group. Prior to that, he held several positions at Northern Trust, including President & CEO of Northern Trust, Missouri and Managing Director and Regional Director of Sales and Marketing in Chicago.

Lazar received his Bachelor of Business Administration from Loyola University, Chicago. In addition to his time on the Board of the Driehaus Museum, he is the immediate past Board Chair of the Joffrey Ballet in Chicago, a member of the Board of Directors of the Lurie Children’s Hospital Foundation and serves on the Board of Directors of the University Club of Chicago.
