Cynthia Culbertson to follow Anna Bishop as Executive Director of The Pyramid Society

The Pyramid Society is pleased to announce that Cynthia Culbertson is assuming the position of Executive Director due to the retirement of the Society’s long-term Executive Director Anna Bishop in September of 2018.  

An enthusiast, breeder and historian of the Straight Egyptian Arabian for over 40 years, Cynthia has served in past positions on the Board of Directors of both The Pyramid Society and The Pyramid Foundation Inc., as well as worked with the Society on a variety of projects and publications over the past 20 years. In addition to her equine-related work on various book, film and museum projects, Cynthia has more than twenty-five years experience in project management and management analysis for corporate, government and non-profit platforms in multi-cultural environments. 

“I feel extremely honored by this opportunity,” states Cynthia. “It goes with saying, however, that Anna Bishop is simply irreplaceable and we have been so blessed as an organization by her loyalty and dedication over the years.” While Cynthia is officially joining the Society as Executive Director, Anna has agreed to stay on in an advisory role during a transitional period through the 2018 Egyptian Event.  “I am particularly thankful to Anna for her generous agreement to work together to ensure the smoothest possible transition,” Cynthia remarks.  

Although Anna readily expresses excitement about this next chapter of her life, she is even quicker to express gratitude in the hiring of Cynthia Culbertson. She states, “Having worked with Cynthia in so many capacities through the years, she can only be described as a ‘true gift’ to the worldwide Arabian community. Her intellect, character, work ethic and extreme devotion to the Straight Egyptian Arabian horse and The Pyramid Society are qualities that endear Cynthia to all and once again reconfirm the board’s wise decision to hire her. ” 

In conclusion, Cynthia wishes to assure the Society and its members that she will do her very best for this great organization. “Although there are many challenges in the equine world today, I know we remain united in our belief that we represent a truly unique horse that deserves our utmost care and support today and for future generations.”
