Bob Cox, a former senior vice president of St. Louis-based technology company Emerson, was hired last week to be the temporary leader of the Missouri History Museum.
The tax payer funded institution has been mired in controversy since the Museum overpaid for land, a sale which involved ex-Mayor Freeman Bosley Jr. Bosley had recently stepped down from the Museum’s board of trustees.
A former senior vice president of St. Louis-based technology company Emerson has been tapped as the temporary leader of the Missouri History Museum post.
Bob Cox will serve as a part-time consultant to the museum until December 31, though the contract can be terminated early if a full-time president is found before then. Cox will receive $85 an hour for his work, but is not eligible for health care or other benefits.
