Naples Art Association Board President Stacey E.J. Bulloch has been named one of the 2012 Gulfshore Business Forty Under Forty, a recognition program for successful businesspeople age 40 and younger. We are proud of her achievements!
Stacey exemplifies a young leader – accomplished, loyal to her Naples community, and dedicated to its growth. Based on her ongoing leadership and contributions to the community, Stacey unquestionably merited consideration for this award.
Stacey is one of the rarest of commodities, a native Floridian. Born in Daytona Beach, Stacey’s family eventually relocated to Naples, and she is a graduate of Naples High School. Following her graduation from the University of Florida, Stacey returned to Naples with her husband to begin her professional career. Stacey is currently the Director of Operations for the Naples office of Leslie Hindman Auctioneers (LHA). LHA is a national auction house based in Chicago with offices in Naples, Palm Beach, Denver and Milwaukee. Stacey’s work at LHA has exposed her to many new Neapolitans and she is proud of the growth that the regional office has experienced. The Naples office will host three separate auctions of Florida residents’ tangible personal property during 2012 and sent over $4 Million in property up to Chicago for dedicated sales in 2011.
In addition to her professional career, Stacey has dedicated herself relentlessly to her volunteer efforts, serving as a Guardian ad litem for Collier County and, over last several years, as a board member of the Naples Art Association. While finishing her first three year term on the board Stacey was elected president of the board of the Naples Art Association. Stacey and her fellow board members are focusing on cementing the art center’s place in the fabric of the Naples community. Originally founded in 1954, the Naples Art Association, along with the exhibitions, classes, workshops, festivals and lectures it provides, greatly enrich the Naples community at large. Additional programs such as ARTScool, a summer art program for children ages 5 to 14, provide an opportunity to give back to the children of Naples while introducing them to the arts, a widely recognized positive developmental force and indicator of future success.
In her free time, Stacey enjoys cooking, is an avid traveler and loves downhill skiing. She combines the two in annual ski trips with her husband, Rob. Locally, she also provides a home to their lovable (now spoiled) rescue dogs, Onyx & Nore.
