After an extensive six-month search, the Boothbay Railway Village Museum Board of Directors are pleased to announce Paul Barcellos, of Fairfield, Maine as the museum’s new executive director. Paul brings with him more than 45 years of experience in a variety of capacities that align perfectly with the mission and goals of BRVM. As a successful three-time business owner, founder and CEO, Paul is well versed in the areas of financial growth, production, and management. As a partner in a multi-use development project for one of the largest rope factories in the world, Paul has the skill set needed to lead the Archival building project forward and to completion. As founder of the Cordage Historical Society, which led to the establishment of the Cordage Museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts, Paul combines his strong business and leadership background with museum related experience. And finally, as a veteran firefighter in the Boston area, Paul brings his selfless devotion of service and safety to our community.

‘It is with this same energy and excitement that I look forward to meeting as many people within the Boothbay community as possible.  One of my first priorities will be thanking those who have kept this iconic symbol of the past operating for more than half a century and working with the community to continue to enhance and develop this special landmark.’ Paul commented.

Paul began his new role last week and has already made strides with the Archival building project and jumped headfirst into the planning of North Pole Express, which begins this weekend. Be sure to get your tickets to the North Pole Express so you can meet Paul in person and welcome him to the community.
