Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

The Indianapolis Museum of Art has announced Kathryn Haigh has been promoted to chief operating officer. Haigh joined the museum in 2007 and most recently served as deputy director for collections, exhibitions and facilities management.

The IMA says, in her new role, Haigh will help lead the development and implementation of a new 30-year master plan as well as continue her work in managing the museum’s art exhibitions, historic sites, security and facilities operations.

"When I arrived at the IMA in 2012, I was immediately impressed by Kathryn Haigh," said Charles Venable chief executive officer of the IMA. "She is very gifted at streamlining procedures and processes within a complicated organization, using technology, best practices and industry standards. These skills are vital to the development and execution of the IMA’s new master plan, which seeks to deliver extraordinary experiences with art and nature throughout our 152-acre campus. Katie has done an outstanding job during her time at the IMA, and no doubt will continue to do so in her new role as COO."

The museum says Haigh is currently helping to draft its first-ever Historic Preservation Policy and Comprehensive Facilities Maintenance Plan. She has previously been involved with projects including the renovation and installation of the Contemporary Design Galleries and the IMA's reaccreditation by the Alliance of American Museums last year.
