The Buffalo Bill Historical Center has made several staff changes.
Dale Timothy White is the division director for the center's new Content and Programming Division (formerly Content) Division. White has been associated with the center for the past several years as a non-trustee member of the Development, Fundraising and Marketing Committee of the board of trustees.
White holds a Ph.D. in public communication from the University of Maryland and a master's degree in political science from the University of Southern California. He has an extensive background in marketing, journalism, public relations, and communications. He served as a member of the Air Force Reserve, retiring in 2006 with the rank of brigadier general. During his military career, he helped to rebrand the U.S. Air Force, resulting in increased recruiting and awareness for its mission. White also has extensive media presentation and production experience having hosted or produced numerous film and television productions.
This one-year appointment calls on him to work four to six days each month providing leadership for departments and employee work groups in the areas of curatorial, conservation, interpretive education, museum services, research fellowships, research library and the Papers of William F. Cody.
Currently serving as acting director of Interpretive Education and acting director of the Content Division, Gretchen Henrich has now been appointed director of Interpretive Education and deputy director of the Content and Programming Division. She is directly responsible for the work of the education staff and for developing a new interpretive plan for the institution.
Bruce Sauers is now the director of the Revenue/Enterprise Division and food and beverage manager with responsibilities geared toward increasing all revenue and enterprise activities at the center: food and beverage, retail, admissions, group sales and other revenue activities.
After six years as public relations director at the Historical Center, Lee Haines has moved into a fundraising position in the Institutional Advancement Division as Rocky Mountain regional manager. In his new role, Haines plans to be "out and about meeting with individuals and businesses throughout the Rocky Mountain region to keep them informed about our programs and plans," and to focus on building relationships with individuals who want to support the Center.
