New Director Appointed to Toitū OSM

Dunedin (Friday, 25 July 2014) – The Dunedin City Council is pleased to announce the appointment of Jennifer Evans as the new Director of Toitū Otago Settlers Museum.

From a competitive field of 14 local, national and international candidates, Ms Jennifer Evans has been appointed as the new Director of Toitū Otago Settlers Museum, which also includes management of the Dunedin Chinese Garden.

Since January 2010, Ms Evans has been the Visitor Experience Manager with Toitū Otago Settlers Museum, but was seconded to Acting Director since October 2013. Prior to that, Ms Evans was Exhibitions and Building Services Manager at the Otago Museum. She has also held posts as Senior Officer Visitor Services in the Paisley Museum and Art Galleries in Scotland and Director of the Te Awamutu District Museum.

Ms Evans will take up the position from Monday, 28 July 2014. She says she is looking forward to stepping up from the acting role she has been carrying out since the departure of Linda Wigley.

“I look forward to bringing more innovation and community participation to the Museum. We have had some great successes and I intend to build on those with the team here at the Museum and Garden.”
Toitū Otago Settlers Museum Trust Board Chair Dr Dot Page says she is delighted with Jennifer’s appointment to this role and looks forward to a bright future for Toitū Otago Settlers Museum under Ms Evan’s leadership.

Acting General Manager Services and Development Nicola Pinfold says Ms Evans brings a wealth of museum experience both nationally and internationally.

“I look forward to her having the opportunity to put in place her exciting ideas for developing further the potential of Toitū and the Chinese Garden.”

Dunedin Chinese Gardens Trust Chairman Malcolm Wong congratulates Ms Evans on her appointment and says the Trust has already been working closely with Ms Evans in her acting role.

“We are looking forward to further cementing the relationship between Toitū Otago Settlers Museum and the Dunedin Chinese Garden.”
