Craig Warren is joining Minnesota Children’s Museum as vice president of enterprise solutions.
Warren, who starts June 20, will be responsible for finance, human resources, volunteer services, information technology, legal and administrative management. He will lead a team of 12 employees.
“I am excited to have Craig’s partnership in advancing our mission to spark children’s learning through play,” said Dianne Krizan, president of Minnesota Children’s Museum. “His team will provide services and proactive solutions that enable staff to do their best work, take on bold projects and expand the museum’s impact.”
Warren brings a unique combination of nonprofit, private and public sector leadership experience. Most recently, Warren was chief operating officer at Greater Twin Cities United Way, where he led initiatives related to finance, diversity and inclusion, shared services, technology planning and employee engagement. Warren’s other professional experience includes shared services and consulting leadership roles at Best Buy, Rockwell Automation, The Coca-Cola Company, and Towers Perrin, as well as serving in the United States Army.
“First as a child and then as a parent, I’ve been fortunate to experience the awe and wonder of museums – and I know how powerful and transformative they can be,” said Warren. “That’s why I’m eager to dive in and help Minnesota Children’s Museum expand its impact and reach new heights.”
Warren serves on the board of East Side Neighborhood Services and is a senior advisor to New Sector Alliance. He completed graduate studies at the University of Chicago and undergraduate studies at The Johns Hopkins University.
