FORT WORTH, Texas (April 21, 2010)–The Amon Carter Museum is pleased to announce that Ron LaPosa has joined its staff as the assistant facilities manager. In his new position, LaPosa will assist with the oversight of the museum’s daily operations, including janitorial, engineering and general maintenance.
“The museum was designed by Philip Johnson as a vibrant and elegant structure that would be capable of not only housing thousands of works of American art, but functioning as a work space for staff and gathering place for visitors,” says Ron Tyler, director of the Amon Carter Museum. “It takes hard work and attention to detail in order to maintain the high standards set forth by Amon G. Carter, and we believe Ron’s expertise will help us ensure that the Carter continues to function in such a manner.”
LaPosa comes to the Carter with a wide range of experience. In his previous position as facility manager for the Cook Children’s Health Care System, he maintained a safe environment for both patients and staff. He also worked for National Semiconductor for more than 17 years, serving as a photolithography equipment engineer and photo technician. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from Purdue University.
“I am greatly looking forward to supporting the needs of the staff and visitors of the Amon Carter Museum,” LaPosa says. “I am honored to be part of the facility management team tasked with caring for the building and grounds, which are works of art in their own right.”
