You will work closely with all departments to monitor expenses, and you will supervise the activities of the accounting office to ensure that timely financial data is available and sound decisions are made. This role encompasses management of day-to-day operations of the museum in collaboration with Facilities Management and Collections Management to ensure the care and safety of the collections and the building as well as capital improvements related to building and grounds.
