I am writing to inform you that Arthur Mombourquette, Senior Associate Vice President for Real Estate, will be leaving Emerson College on March 1, 2019 to become the Vice President of Support Services and Site Management at South Shore Health System.
Since joining the College in 2015, Art has directed multiple significant construction, renovation, and new building projects. Among these transformative projects are the Little Building renovations, construction of the new residence hall at 2 Boylston Place, expansion of the Boylston Street sidewalk, and the acquisition of 172 Tremont Street. Art and his team have helped the College make remarkable progress toward strengthening Emerson’s sense of place in Boston and beyond as well as bringing to life the complementary revitalization of the downtown corridor.
Art joined us from Cape Cod Hospital, where in his role as Chief Operating Officer he oversaw the campus master plan and was responsible for the coordination and implementation of major real estate projects. Prior to that, Art served as VP of Administrative Services for Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he led numerous campus renovation projects, including the construction of the new Shapiro Cardiovascular Center and the redevelopment of the Mass Mental Health site. At both hospitals, he was responsible for short and long term space utilization and building renewal projects. I am confident that Art’s 30+ years of leadership there and at Emerson will serve him well in his next endeavor.
I thank Art for his collegiality, expertise, and sound guidance, always with the best interests of the College at the forefront.
I have begun a process with Art, his senior team and Steve Samuels, Chair of the Board of Trustees Facilities Committee, to develop near term plans to identify the person or persons who will assume his responsibilities after his departure. An update regarding the progress of two current construction projects: 172 Tremont Street and the Little Building, will soon be shared with the community.
Please join me in wishing Art well and thanking him for his significant contributions to Emerson College.
