Big News - after 10 years and a multi-million reopening, our Chief Executive Max Dunbar and Chair of Trustees Andrew Singer QC will step down as they hand over the new museum for someone new to lead the organisation during the next stage of its journey.
Max Dunbar: “Leaving after so many years was never going to be easy, but now the new building is open and, I’m delighted to say, buzzing with activity, it feels like the right time to step aside and let someone new lead this incredible organisation into the future. I am excited to continue to support Manchester’s cultural organisations at the University of Manchester in my new role.
It has been a privilege to lead the museum during its transformation and through such an important period of its history. I am so proud of everything we have achieved and want to express my profound gratitude to our supporters, our contractors, our trustees, our visitors and most of all the staff and volunteers at the museum. They have all shaped what the museum is today and made us an invaluable and rich contribution to the history and culture of this great city.”
We are sad to be saying farewell to Max and Andrew after everything they have achieved for our stunning new museum. From everyone at the museum - thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
