Temora Aviation Museum's long-time Chief Executive Kenny Love is to leave the museum after 17 years in the role.
Love will instead take up a new position with museum chief David Lowy's private company LFG.
“Kenny has been the cornerstone around which the Museum has been built – we simply would not be where we are today without his leadership,” Lowy said.
“We have been extremely fortunate to have Kenny as our Chief Executive for the past 17 years and the Museum’s success is testament to his enthusiasm, dedication and hard work.
“At a personal level, I am delighted that Kenny has chosen to take the next step in his career with me at LFG."
Love will be replaced at TAM by Murray Kear AFSM, a former Commissioner of the NSW State Emergency Service and manager of the NSW Scout Air Activity Centre at Camden.
Kear will be joined at TAM by Glenn Stevens AC, former Govenor of the Reserve Bank of Australia, who will join the museum's governing committee on 1 January 2017.
“These appointments are milestones for the Museum," Lowy said, "and will allow it to continue to develop its broad base of public ownership as it grows and evolves in the future.
“With their wealth of experience and love of aviation, Murray and Glenn will be extremely valuable resources for the Museum and I looking forward to working with them.”
