good move

The Board of Directors of the Herreshoff Marine Museum/America’s Cup Hall of Fame is pleased to welcome Bill Lynn as President & Executive Director.  Bill takes the reins from Larry Lavers who is retiring after a successful 4-year tenure during which he oversaw the organization’s return to financial stability and the launch of several key projects.

Bill is a lifelong sailor and classic yachting enthusiast with a background in marketing and communications.  He leaves behind almost 3 decades of success in the for-profit world to help lead the transformation of the Herreshoff Marine Museum from a relatively undiscovered treasure to the vibrant cultural institution that the organization believes it has the potential to be.

David Ford, the Chairman of the Board Of Directors, added, “Over the last several years, the Museum has built a solid organizational and financial foundation that supports the cornerstone of our new strategic plan, which is growing our audience, in the region and around the world. Bill has the perfect set of skills and experience to lead the Museum in a new phase of growth.”
