Kelly at Maritime Compass reports that Mystic Seaport: The Museum of America and the Sea is looking to fill a newly created position of executive director.
Driven by the exciting goals of the transformation of the Mystic Seaport Museum, reporting to the President & CEO, who will be devoting an extensive amount of his time and energy to the Museum’s on-going capital campaign, and working alongside the senior leadership and the Board of Trustees of the Museum, this newly created position will provide both the visionary leadership and extra expertise necessary to take Mystic Seaport to the next level. Mystic Seaport’s transformational plans are aimed at strengthening the institution’s capabilities as a cultural and educational asset.
Mystic Seaport is one of the most impressive maritime institutions in the world but like many other living history museums, they have been challenged by declining attendance for a number of years. This will be an exciting opportunity. If you’re interested contact Victoria Reese at Heidrick and Struggles (NYC) at email@example.com or by fax, 212-370-9035. Closing date for application is November 15th.
