Jo Quinton-Tulloch, who currently holds the position of head of exhibitions at the Science Museum, has been appointed as the National Media Museum's head.
The National Media Museum, based in Bradford, is part of the Science Museum Group.
Quinton-Tulloch is expected to assume her new role in September 2012. She is said to have 18 years of experience working in museums, and has "established successful exhibitions and programmes at the Science Museum, and also at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, in Falmouth."
Her appointment comes a few months after Colin Philpott resigned from his position of director of the National Media Museum in protest against a senior level restructure at the Science Museum Group.
"I am delighted that Jo has agreed to take on this role, in London and Falmouth she has led the delivery of world class exhibitions and programmes working with audiences, artists and curators," says Heather Mayfield, deputy director of the Science Museum. "I look forward to seeing her using the National Media Museum collections in new and exciting ways."
Quinton-Tulloch's priority will be "to ensure optimum public access to the National Collections held and cared for in Bradford, through the Museum's displays, digital delivery and research," says the organisation.
She will also be in charge of the Media Space, a new permanent gallery in the Science Museum slated to open in Spring 2013.
