The museum has reopened its search for a new leader. Katie Spencer, the founding Executive Director, recently stepped down to focus on curatorial interests, and Director of Operations Patrick Mucklow stepped up to serve as Interim Executive Director.
“We’re on firmer footing than ever before,” said MoDH Board Chair Carlton Wilson, “and we’re eager to have a permanent executive director in place. There are exciting times ahead for the museum.”
The Executive Director is the museum’s face to the community and has overall strategic and operational responsibility for staff, programs and execution of the Museum’s vision. Community relations, fundraising, and exhibit oversight are important aspects of the job description.
The board is looking for five years of management and development experience with a museum or other performance-based organization, demonstrated business abilities, and strong communication and project skills.
The full job description is posted online.
