The National Museum finally has a new director.

Mathew Trinca, who has been acting in the role since previous director Andrew Sayers left last June, will finally take up the reigns in earnest next month.

Dr Trinca has been one of the museum’s assistant directors since 2006, and first came to the national institution as a senior curator in 2003.

The process of appointing a new director has been particularly drawn out, due to the timing of Mr Sayers’ announcement of his resignation last April, and an intervening federal election and two different arts ministers in the interim. Federal arts minister George Brandis maintained late last year that the process of appointing a new director had not been unduly delayed, but a matter of timing and process.

Mr Brandis said Thursday that the recruitment process had been extensive, but that Dr Trinca, who has been at the museum since 2003, would bring knowledge and expertise to the role.
