OMSI CEO Stueber retires in May
Nancy Stueber, chief executive officer for the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, plans to retire at the end of May.
Stueber has been with the museum for more than 35 years. She leaves May 31.
OMSI officials said Thursday, Feb. 20, that Chief Operating Officer Erin Graham will take over as the new president.
"On behalf of the entire OMSI Board of Trustees, we thank Nancy Stueber for her exemplary service of more than 35 years and welcome Erin Graham to her new leadership role," said Alistair Firmin, chair, OMSI board. "Nancy has led the institution she loves with a mission she lives and inspires each day, and she has navigated well through an amazing period of growth and transformation."
Stueber has spent most of her professional career at OMSI. She was hired in 1982 as a science educator. She became vice president of exhibits in 1989 and president in 2000.
"Working at OMSI has been a rich and rewarding experience and it is something for which I am grateful every day," Stueber said. "My husband and I are looking forward to some of the adventures that we've put on hold over the years."
OMSI was formed in 1944 as an educational resource for area children. It operates the largest museum-based outdoor science education program in the country.
