Do we need a hero? Succession planning III

A few weeks ago I posted twice on succession planning: the question of how (and who) we're preparing to take over our art galleries when the current directors leave (see also Over the net's useful diagram of directors' tenures).

Continuing on this theme, here's an interview with Malcolm MacKay, art world head hunter:

A consultant at the prestigious New York executive search firm Russell Reynolds Associates, MacKay, 66, is a sort of art world superhero, swooping in whenever museums are in need of a new director.

Fortuitous update: An article on, about MacKay's involvement in the search for new directors for the Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
