THE BRITISH Motor Museum has made three senior appointments.

Stephen Laing, who was previously Curator at the Gaydon museum for 25 years, has been promoted to Head of Collections. Stephen, who has also joined the Senior Management Team, is now responsible for the Car, Museum and Archive collections, as well as exhibitions and cultural programming.

Cat Griffin has now been promoted to the role of Curator. Cat joined the Museum as an Arts Council England trainee in 2015 and was then promoted to Curatorial Assistant in 2017. In her current role, Cat now has more responsibility for the collections care and management along with the delivery of exhibitions.

Charlotte Gallant has been appointed to the role of Archivist and was previously Deputy Archivist for three years. Charlotte is now responsible for the overall running of the Archive department, looking after the collections of documents, film and photographs as well as the heritage certificate service.

Stephen said: “I am privileged to take on the role of Head of Collections at the British Motor Museum. Despite having worked with the collections for many years, I’m still fascinated by the richness of the heritage we have here at Gaydon. It’s a pleasure to be able to play an even greater part in its future and sharing it more widely.

“I’m delighted to welcome Charlotte and Cat to their new roles. Both bring a fresh perspective to how we can develop our collections and programmes. I look forward to working with them and the rest of the talented team here at the Museum, to make our collections even more accessible, engaging and enjoyable for all”.
