A former longtime staffer at the Walker Art Center is returning. David Galligan will take on the position of Deputy Director/Chief Operating Officer beginning April 15.
Galligan served as the Chief Operating Officer and Treasurer of the Walker from 1986 until 2002; among his duties was oversight of the high profile expansion of the museum.
The hire is part of a restructuring of Walker senior management by Executive Director Olga Viso.
Galligan initially left the Walker to take on the position of President and Ceo of the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts, a position he held for four years. Since then he's worked as a management consultant for several national organizations.
