Meet Rebecca Lerback, Development Director
“When I stepped in the museum’s gallery, I was captivated by the collection. After observing the students working on cars in the auto tech program, I was convinced. World of Speed is exciting and relevant. I’m thrilled to be part of the team that’s helping it grow.” Lerback brings both passion and expertise to her role as our Development Director. In her three decades of experience, she has held fundraising positions in higher education and at a museum. She also served as a program officer for a major foundation, which expanded her skills in philanthropy and helped her “think like a donor.” Lerback enjoys getting to know World of Speed’s donors and volunteers and is eager to learn from them about all facets of racing. “I grew up in Southern California and have always loved daring driving and gorgeous fast cars. Being surrounded by them, and the stories of the people who have been behind their wheels, makes coming to work each day simply riveting.” She is eager to meet all volunteers, members, sponsors, and donors who are part of the museum’s community.
