Aaron Berger

Campaign Director

Aaron Berger brings to Coxe Curry & Associates his nearly 20 years of experience working in the nonprofit sector. His consulting experience includes development assessments, feasibility studies, capital campaigns, annual funds, and strategic planning. Currently, Aaron is working with Literacy Action, Inc., Clark Atlanta University, the Russell Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Latin American Association, and Temple Sinai. 

Aaron began his career as the director of the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art where he guided the institution through a major restructuring and a refocus of its mission and programming and donor development.

In 2002, Aaron was named the director of the Albany Museum of Art, making him among the youngest in the country to lead a nationally accredited Museum. While in Albany, the Museum experienced a 104 percent growth in membership and was named Institution of the Year for 2005 by the Georgia Association of Museums and Galleries. Aaron then began a career in nonprofit management consulting working with cultural organizations around the country in the areas of operational fundraising, nonprofit management, board development, and large-scale capital campaigns.

Aaron became the executive director of the Breman Museum in 2012, and during his tenure the Museum created original Atlanta-centric exhibitions such as Return to Rich’s: The Story Behind the Store, which drew more than 20,000 visitors, and Atlanta Collects, which featured more than 200 years of fine art from the homes of Jewish collectors in Atlanta. During this time, attendance increased 30 percent, and the annual operating budget grew by approximately 80 percent.

In addition to an undergraduate degree in art history and an MBA, Aaron received the Atlanta Business Chronicle Up and Comers Award for “40 Under 40” and is a proud Leadership Atlanta graduate, an organization in which he remains deeply involved. 

Aaron and his partner, Dr. Jarred Lightner, live in Sandy Springs. They can often be found on the BeltLine or seeking out Atlanta eateries ranging from street food to fine dining.
