The Metropolitan Museum of Art has tapped New York Public Library’s Vice President of Communications and Marketing, Ken Weine as the Chief Communications Officer, according to a press release.
“The Met inspires me profoundly—as it does millions of New Yorkers and visitors from around the world every year,” Weine said, in a statement. “The opportunity to work alongside the curators of what I consider to be the world’s greatest museum will be a tremendous honor and privilege.”
Weine’s experience also includes communications and marketing at Newsweek and seven years at Consumer Reports/Consumers Union, directing communications and branding.
“The Met deserves a public voice that reaches the widest possible range of audiences, which we are confident Ken can achieve,” Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO, stated in the release. “We are thrilled for Ken to bring his wide range of experiences and skills to partner with our unparalleled curatorial vision, collections, exhibitions, and programming.”
Weine will join The Met in February.
