Three Museum of Contemporary Art officials with key financial roles — the chief operating officer, fundraising director and a trustee who chaired the board’s finance committee — have left MOCA in the last three months. They had been at their posts less than a year.
MOCA officials declined to answer questions about the departures and the museum’s finances, instead releasing a brief written statement from David Johnson and Maria Bell, co-chairs of MOCA’s board. It said the board and Deitch have “worked to … make staff changes where appropriate to strengthen the team. We are always sorry to lose a board member, but we have continued to build the board with the addition of five newly-elected trustees in the last 12 months.”
