Carol Bintz, chief operating officer of the Toledo Museum of Art, has been named Professional of the Year by the Ohio Museum Association. The award was presented during the organization’s recent statewide conference.

The honor, recognizing professional accomplishments and service by an OMA member institution, is presented for outstanding leadership and professional service over an extended period of time; demonstrating continual growth and development of an organization or specific programs.

Bintz has been with the Toledo Museum of Art since 1991. As chief operating officer she played a crucial role overseeing construction of the award-winning Glass Pavilion® and in making the Museum a leader in the use of green technologies. Under her guidance the institution’s move to use solar power, LED lighting and micro-turbine generators has made TMA a leader in retrofitting its facilities to reduce operating costs. The Museum went “off the grid” for the first time in 2013, returning more energy to the system than it used.
