Andrea Bailey Cox currently serves as the Executive Director and CEO of Art & History Museums – Maitland with two campuses listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Maitland Art Center, Waterhouse Residence Museum, Carpentry Shop Museum, Telephone Museum and Maitland Historical Museum. Ms. Cox created a development plan that resulted in a 116% increase in annual giving and 119% increase in gala revenue over the past three years.
