Phillip Jimenez, former president and CEO of San Miguel School Chicago, was named the new vice president and chief operating officer of the National Museum of Mexican Art (NMMA) in Chicago.

Jimenez will work alongside Carlos Tortolero, president and CEO, and the Board of Directors to ensure the museum's future in regards to its financial matters, operations, revenue, marketing, human resource, technology, and strategic planning. The hiring of Jimenez is an effort to create more national partners and additional opportunities for the museum.

Tortolero, who created the position to increase the museum's opportunities, will also allow him to ensure the museum maintains its daily operations while he is away. Jimenez in his new role plans to increase cultural and educational awareness for Hispanics, which will benefit the community.

While working with the San Miguel School Chicago, Jimenez was responsible for national fundraising, strategic planning, board development and supporting member schools and its administration. Jimenez increased the school's revenue by 20 percent when he took over as president and CEO in 2010.

Found in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood, the museum has a collection that spans over 3,000 years of Mexican, Latino and Chicano history. For more information on the museum, visit
