JFK Li­brary names di­rec­tor

Boston Herald - - BIZSMART -

A for­mer Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion ap­pointee who pre­vi­ously led Har­vard Busi­ness School’s Global Lead­er­ship In­sti­tute will be the next leader of the John F. Kennedy Pres­i­den­tial Li­brary and Mu­seum.

The Na­tional Ar­chives and Records Ad­min­is­tra­tion an­nounced that Alan Price will take over as di­rec­tor on Tues­day.

The li­brary has not had a per­ma­nent di­rec­tor for three years, fol­low­ing the 2015 res­ig­na­tion of Thomas Put­nam amid in­ter­nal con­flicts over mod­ern­iza­tion ef­forts.

The li­brary’s hon­orary pres­i­dent, for­mer U.S. Am­bas­sador Caro­line Kennedy, says Price’s ex­pe­ri­ence will bring new en­ergy and vi­sion to the li­brary.

Price was tapped to serve as an of­fi­cial in the Peace Corps and as act­ing chief of staff for the Fed­eral Me­di­a­tion and Con­cil­i­a­tion Ser­vice un­der then-Pres­i­dent Barack Obama.
