The Bishop Museum of Science and Nature recently selected a new CEO to succeed the interim Charles Zajaczkowski. 

Andrew Sandall, a seasoned museum executive, will step into the role March 6, 2023. He’s been in the business since 1992 for museums in both the U.S. and his native U.K. 

"Andy is a natural leader, wise, genuine, personable and effective," board member Marti King says in a release. "He is the connector The Bishop needs for our next chapter."

Sandall’s experience in the industry includes a stint as president of the Florida Art Museum Directors Association as well as eight years serving on the Florida Association of Museums board. 

"Andy's 30 years of museum experience will have an immediate and positive impact on The Bishop's operations and programs," board member David Sessions says in a statement. "We look forward to continuing The Bishop's 76 years of success under Andy's leadership."

The natural history museum features an ever-changing special exhibitions lineup, planetarium, the Parker Manatee Rehabilitation Habitat and the Mosaic Backyard Universe. Established in 1947, the museum was formerly named the South Florida Museum until a rebranding process that started in 2007.
