The Bruce Museum in Greenwich, CT has announced the departure of its executive director and CEO Robert Wolterstorff, effective 30 June. 

Wolterstorff joined the institution in June 2019, overseeing its campaign for a major expansion titled ‘The New Bruce’. The $68 million campaign saw the construction of a 3,995 square-metre addition dedicated to exhibitions and public programming, which opened last April.

‘With the new building up and running, growing pains being thoughtfully addressed, new fiscal leadership in place, and the strategic plan providing a road map for the future, I feel like I have accomplished what I set out to do,’ Wolterstorff says in a statement. ‘It is a good moment for me to step away.’

The ‘fiscal leadership’ Wolterstorff mentions refers to the museum’s appointment of Jonathan Rohner as the institution’s chief operating officer (COO). Rohner was previously director of finance and administration at the Yale Peabody Museum/Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies (YIBS) in New Haven.
