President of the EcoTarium

The EcoTarium, located in New England’s second largest city, seeks its next President to lead this award-winning, mid-sized museum to its next level of growth and excellence. Founded in 1825, EcoTarium’s mission is to “inspire a passion for science and nature” by engaging individuals and families in an interactive and vibrant indoor/outdoor experience on 55 acres. The hallmarks of the 61,000-square foot museum are its permanent and changing interactive exhibits, enlivened by a rich array of educational programs and unique special events. The museum’s latest permanent exhibit, City Science: The Science You Live, opened in January 2017.


The ideal candidate will possess at least 10 years of increasing experience with fiscal responsibility in the museum, cultural, educational sectors or a similarly complex organization. A strategic and visionary thinker with an entrepreneurial spirit, the ideal candidate will have experience evaluating and growing institutional programs and exhibits. The candidate must have a strong track record of decisive and effective leadership and have proven operation, development, and financial management skills. A talented friend-raiser and fearless fund-raiser, the successful candidate will build on the recently completed Phase II of the Third Century Capital Campaign to consolidate and grow the museum as one of the premier science-based, informal learning family destinations in the region and beyond.
