James Blumenfeld

mAe Founder

Born and raised in St. Louis, Jim moved to Florida eight years ago from Connecticut.  After a stop in Central Florida, he moved south to Delray Beach two years ago.  Jim has a left brain, right brain marketing gift for finding strategic combinations that produce business-changing results. He’s done so for brands including Hostess, Wonder, Nabisco, Coca Cola, Citibank, Ameritrade and non-profits that focus on autism, education, equality, fighting AIDS and the fine arts.

Jim currently serves as President of the Upper School PTO at the American Heritage School. While his career has focused on marketing after receiving his MBA from Washington University in St. Louis, Jim’s love of art began with his undergraduate art history degree from The George Washington University.

His studies empowered a life-long appreciation and collection of the fine arts leading him and partner Susan Romaine to open The Meridian Art Experience (The mAe Gallery, Art services and Consultation) in Delray Beach.

Jim has a husband, two children, one grandchild and one on the way.  These days, for Jim, life is all about the fine art of living with art in South Florida.
