Te Papa has a new CEO – Michael Houlihan.

Yesterday the Chairman and Board of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa confirmed the appointment of Michael Houlihan as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for the museum.

Michael Houlihan was interviewed yesterday morning, shortly after the announcement, by Simon Morton on Radio NZ National’s Summer Report.
