Julian Mackenzie, president and CEO of The Museum of Science and Industry, intends to retire by the end of this summer, according to a MOSI news release.
During his four years with the nonprofit science center, he guided it through major changes, including a significant reorganization and complete refocusing of the museum’s exhibits and footprint, the news release says.
“If we want to build a better region and world, we must have children and adults who understand science, technology, engineering and mathematics. I love that every person who comes through the MOSI doors brings us closer to this vision,” Mackenzie said, in the release.
A transition committee has been formed to lead the process for naming Mackenzie’s successor.
