Former Euronav CEO Paddy Rodgers has been unveiled today as the new director of Royal Museums Greenwich, succeeding Kevin Fewster.
Rodgers, who announced he was leaving Euronav in February after over 18 years service, will commence the role in August.
Sir Charles Dunstone, chair of Royal Museums Greenwich Trustees, commented: “Royal Museums Greenwich comprises the pre-eminent museum in its field, the National Maritime Museum, the world famous Royal Observatory Greenwich, the splendid Queen’s House and the historic tea clipper, Cutty Sark. Paddy joins us on the completion of a hugely successful masterplan project. With his first class links in the maritime industries, demonstrable communication and leadership skills and experience of environmental impacts, the museum’s trustees believe Paddy is the right person to lead the museum on the next stage of our development. We all look forward to his working with us in the coming years.”
Commenting on his appointment, Rodgers said: “I have been privileged to have been a life patron in such an important national institution and I have been very impressed to see its development on so many fronts under Kevin Fewster’s tenure. I am clearly delighted and excited to be joining the team and to lead the museum into a bright and sustainable future.”
