New CEO of Science East announced
Fredericton, N.B., June 9, 2020- Science East is pleased to announce the appointment of Guy Robbins to the position of CEO, effective immediately. Guy is a strong advocate of change as the means for growth on a personal and professional level. A citizen of the world, he was brought up in Nigeria, Kenya and England. He moved to Canada in 1997. He brings to Science East 20 years of executive and curatorial experience in museum management which spans across the US, UK and Western Canada. His love of history inspired his work as a curator at the UK’s Imperial War Museum and the National Maritime Museum, the Augusta Museum of History in Georgia and other air and naval history museums. In Manitoba, he held the position of Executive Director at two museums before moving to New Brunswick. Guy was hired as Chief Operating Officer at Science East in September 2019.
