It takes a certain type of person to get ultra wealthy people to donate collections of rare manuscripts, books and other materials, in addition to large endowments, to the NYC Public Library system. This person must also be ready to attend other peoples charity events, social gatherings, and affairs whether he wants to or not. He or she must be willing and able to entertain the ultra rich at home and in public, because these are the people who finance the building and maintenance of new pavilions, pave the way for future projects, and help finance other library resources. This is in addition to running the third largest repository of books in the world, creating an online system for everybody who has the internet, managing numerous people and library institutions, making decisions that involve many millions of dollars, and much more. Basically, it's a commitment of all his time and you shouldn't have to read between the lines of Dr. LeClerc's bio to realize this. You can't get any of this done very well with a hundred dollar suit, a tie from Wal-Mart, a one bedroom co-op in the boonies, and a standing reservation at the Olive Garden.
