After conducting a national search, we welcomed Maggie Roudsari as our new Chief Development Officer this spring.
Maggie is an enthusiastic nonprofit leader driven by her genuine interest in connecting people to opportunities that empower them to change their communities.
She comes to GMRI from the South Carolina Aquarium in Charleston, where she led a team that recently completed a $25M comprehensive campaign.
“I’ve spent my life on the coast, exploring everything our marine ecosystems and coastal economy have to offer. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work alongside others with a shared passion for the ocean.”Maggie Roudsari Chief Development Officer
Prior to joining GMRI, Maggie was the Assistant Director of Advancement at the South Carolina Aquarium, and previously served as Executive Director of the Colleton County Arts Council, and Executive Director of the Charleston Regional Alliance for the Arts.
Maggie follows long-time Chief Development Officer Blaine Grimes, who remains with the organization in a new role.
