Catherine “Cat” Graham has recently been named executive director of MacCallum More Museum and Gardens. She replaces Liz Lowrance, who retired in November of 2020.
“I’m stepping into some big shoes to fill, but I am excited by the opportunity, and I look forward to exploring and growing the gardens,” Graham said.
In her former role, Graham was vice president and chief operations officer of the award-winning global disaster response nonprofit Humanity Road.
“A priority for our programs here at MacCallum More is to ensure we are being good stewards of the legacy, land and features of the gardens. By working together with our community and building collaborative partnerships, we can support and sustain our educational, horticultural, historical and artistic mission goals,” Graham said. “It’s a busy time for us and the perfect time to visit the gardens. We’re currently getting ready for Historic Garden week April 17–24, an Arbor Day celebration April 30 and Jazz in the Gardens May 2.”
“Cat brings a wealth of experience in nonprofit management and how to leverage technology for the greater good. We’re thrilled to have her on the team,” Richie Richards, president of MacCallum More Museum and Gardens, said.
