News release from Bishop Museum, March 30, 2023

Honolulu, Hawaiʻi — The Board of Directors of Bishop Museum today announced the appointment of Dee Jay Mailer to a three-year term as president and CEO, effective immediately.

Mailer has been leading the Museum on an interim basis since Feb. 2, 2023. The board’s vote, taken at its regularly scheduled quarterly meeting on Wednesday, was motivated in part by enthusiastic feedback about Mailer’s leadership from staff, donors and community members. “What the Museum needs most right now is stable, experienced leadership and we have found that in Dee Jay,” said Board Chair Wayne Pitluck. “In her first eight weeks on the job, she has filled critical executive positions, started work on a needed restructuring of our HR systems and begun guiding staff in envisioning the next phase of the existing 2020-2023 strategic plan.”

“We felt blessed to have someone of Dee Jay’s caliber serve in an interim capacity and are thrilled that she has committed to a longer term,” Pitluck continued.

At its Wednesday meeting, the board also voted to terminate the executive search process that had commenced upon Mailer’s appointment as the Museum’s interim leader. Both actions received unanimous approval by members present.

“I feel very fortunate to be working with our talented and dedicated Museum staff,” said Mailer. “I am excited by the work we’ve begun together to make an already wonderful institution even stronger, and I appreciate the board for allowing us time to complete the work we’ve started.”
