San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum is pleased to announce the appointment of Krishna Kabra as its new Executive Director. Ms. Kabra will assume the role on August 31, 2020.
“I am so thrilled to be part of San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum,” said Ms. Kabra. “These are incredibly unprecedented times for all organizations. However, at the Museum we see it as an opportunity to be in a ‘chrysalis state’—an enterprising opportunity to pivot into new areas of early childhood education and enrichment and, most important, deliver what parents really need during these incredibly challenging times.”
Ms. Kabra has over twenty years of experience in insights, innovation, and marketing strategy in the corporate world. As part of two large agencies, she worked on some of the world's largest brands including Coca Cola, Wrigley, Unilever, L'Oréal, and many others. She holds a deep passion for entrepreneurship and understands what it takes to grow an organization. Having previously served on the Board of Directors of San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum, Ms. Kabra has consciously chosen to pivot her career towards the world of nonprofit and is excited to bring her skills and experience to a mission-based organization.
“The Board anticipates that working with Krishna will be a joy-filled exercise in discovery,” said Kimberlie Dunham, Board Chair of San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum. “Krishna is the epitome of a creative thinker. Combined with her passion for reimagining and transformation, Krishna’s innovative nature bodes well for the future of not just San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum, but the entire children’s museum community. We are excited to work with her through this and all future phases of the Museum’s existence.”
“I’m excited,” continued Ms. Kabra. “There is tremendous scope for growth at the Museum and I can’t wait to be at the helm of a much-needed renaissance.”
