When Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library, one of Delaware’s most attended and respected museums, needed to find a new CEO in 2021, it turned to Chris Strand. He had served as director of garden and estate at Winterthur since 2005, managing the care of the historic du Pont family’s nearly 1,000-acre property. As its leader, Strand will be responsible for Winterthur’s numerous academic programs with the University of Delaware, fundraising, planning and more. He already scored a win in landing a major exhibit on late couture designer Ann Lowe.
