Perot Museum turns to 'the right person at the right time' as its new CEO

Linda Abraham-Silver, 47, whose most recent employer was the government of Abu Dhabi, for which she spearheaded science and technology initiatives, is the new CEO of the downtown Dallas museum.... Abraham-Silver is not the only new player at the Perot. Its board chairman since October is Hernan J.F. Saenz III, 46
[Saenz] ties to the Hispanic community give him something in common with Agustín Arteaga, the new director of the Dallas Museum of Art. Saenz is bilingual and has instituted a policy whereby new or "refreshed" exhibits at the Perot carry bilingual content. "If you simply look at the demographics of our city, we have a very large Hispanic population," he said. "If we're the city's museum, we're everyone's museum."
The next phase for the Perot, he said, is more external than internal, with Abraham-Silver tasked with what happens "outside these walls."
Want I want to hear about the Museum is that instead of join work on a expansion of KWPark via giant parking garage and 'interesting' ramp to the Nature & Science Museum, an effort has begun to buy all or part of The NorthEnd Apartments.
