He replaces James Brayton Hall, the society’s former director who left Providence in March to become deputy director of the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Florida. He will take over from the Society’s interim executive director, Karen L. Jessup, a local preservationist and former Society board member who took the reins after Hall’s departure.
