Dec. 5, 2011 - PRLog -- The Board of Directors of the Houston Maritime Museum (HMM) is pleased to welcome Diane Lipton as Director of Development, effective December 5, 2011.  HMM showcases the influence of the maritime industry on the development of Houston and the state of Texas with ship models and displays from around the world.  Lipton will lead development for the expansion of the museum, including its relocation to a larger and more strategic location that is closer to the ship channel.

“We are pleased that Diane has agreed to come on board. She will be essential to the continuing the growth of the museum, and with her impressive credentials we know she will guide us into a successful future,” stated Chairman of the Board, Niels Aalund.

Lipton served as President of the Houston East End Chamber of Commerce from 2000 through 2010 and as its Director of Education through May, 2011.  During her tenure, the East End Chamber worked with more than 300 community partners to develop a ten-year strategic vision. The successful implementation of the vision resulted in The National Engineering Academy at Chavez High School; a partnership with the Port of Houston Maritime Academies at Austin and Yates High Schools; the initial approval for the construction of the Dynamo stadium in the East End; the community-friendly design of the Harrisburg light rail line and an economic development program recognized as the one of the best programs across the region.  

“The opportunity to work with the leaders of this industry to preserve and promote maritime history as the foremost economic generator in the development of the city, county and state is a unique privilege.  I am eager to contribute to the expansion of the museum as a grand tribute to the Port of Houston when it celebrates its 100th Anniversary in 2014,” says Lipton.  

The Houston Maritime Museum’s mission is to capture and preserve the wonder and influence of maritime history and the marine industry with focus on the development of Houston, the Texas Gulf Coast, and the State of Texas.
