Royal BC Museum board chair comments on secret employment contract

I’m a member of the Royal BC Museum. Tonight I received this email from the board chair, Suromitra Sanatani, regarding the museum CEO’s secret pre-employment contract:

Dear David Bratzer,

You may have read media stories around Professor Jack Lohman’s employment contract, which was negotiated in good faith over two and half years ago. As Board Chair, I want to be clear that Professor Lohman has the Board’s full support and that we feel very fortunate to have him leading the Royal BC Museum. He is a strong representative of the values of public service and has an impeccable record. On behalf of the Board, I am sorry that our fine organization is currently under some negative scrutiny. I want to assure you that as a public sector organization, we are committed to transparency and accountability and will do our best to properly fulfill changing policy guidelines issued by government.

We have a lot of exciting initiatives in progress under Jack’s strong leadership and I look forward to us working together to fulfill the museum’s vision.

Yours sincerely,

Suromitra Sanatani
Board Chair, Royal BC Museum

Happy Canada Day from Dave & Chris Hadfield
