Andrew Klemmer, President of Paratus Group, has been engaged in museum programming, design and construction for over 30 years.  In 1991, Andy was chosen to oversee the completion of the renovation of the landmarked Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on Manhattan's Museum Mile.  Subsequently, the company was asked to play a key role directing the planning and programming of the new Frank Gehry-designed Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, in Bilbao Spain. Andy founded Paratus Group in order to provide more focused consulting for projects involving complex programs, exceptional design, intricate construction and highly creative global teams. He plays a key leadership role in each project undertaken by Paratus Group. 

Andy’s formal education is in the area of Economics and Environmental Studies from Bowdoin College. 

He was chosen to participate in a 16-member advisory panel to provide guidance on design and aesthetic issues for the new Tappan Zee Bridge.  He was a member of a panel discussion for the American Institute of Architects, "If You Build It Will They Come?" a roundtable on the building of museums in 2010 and was a guest juror at Yale University.
