March 2, 2016

The Museum of Vancouver’s Board of Directors announces that CEO Nancy Noble will be leaving MOV at the end of July.

A rigorous and disciplined search for her successor will begin now to ensure a smooth transition.

“It has been an amazing ten years at MOV, and I am very proud of everything we’ve accomplished, creating a great city museum,” says Noble. “However, I am looking forward to new challenges and I hope to continue to push boundaries of what a museum can do.”

Board Chair, Jill Tipping, says, “Nancy’s leadership has had a significant impact on the Museum and the role it plays in the community. Over the past ten years, she led the organization to the creation of a new vision, values, direction and brand. The Museum’s reputation has grown in attendance and has won numerous awards. Noble transformed the Museum into a significant civic institution, reflecting the values and interests of Vancouverites, and making an impact in the city’s cultural realm.

Nancy Noble has taken the Museum of Vancouver on an exciting journey in the last decade and the MOV looks to the future and the opportunity to once again redefine the Museum and its role in Vancouver’s cultural life.  MOV recently unveiled a new five-year strategic plan focusing on its position as a social connector, inspiring civic engagement and improving the institution’s sustainability.

The Board of Directors is both proud and greatly appreciative of Nancy’s exceptional contribution to the Museum of Vancouver and for her leadership and its significant impact on the Museum and the role in plays in the community.
