John S. Stanley is leaving Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts to become deputy director of New York’s Whitney Museum, the Whitney announced June 26 (via Geoff Edgers). He will begin the new job in August.

The announcement from the Whitney, which is run by former Addison Gallery director Adam Weinberg, said that Stanley served ...

Among his many achievements at the MFA, he helped to realize twelve consecutive years of operating surpluses for the museum and school (after five years of deficits prior to his arrival), completed multiple capital projects on time and within budget, created new ties to state and city government and community groups, increased membership, directed strategic planning initiatives and led efforts to improve education and visitor services through in-gallery interpretation and programs.”
