The Canadian Museum of Human Rights announced their chief operating officer today.

Gail Stephens will be taking the position starting in August, according to a press release.

Stephens is currently Victoria’s city manager. Previously she was Winnipeg’s first chief administrative officer. She has also been named one of Canada’s "100 most powerful women."

As COO, Stephens will among other things be in charge of the museum’s "overall financial performance," according to the release.

"It is exciting to become part of this unique and inspiring museum, which I believe will be a beacon for visitors from around the world," Stephens said in the release.

The CMHR is currently still under construction, and is expected to open in 2014. It is the first national museum established outside of the national capital region.
