ST. CHARLES – St. Charles native Lindsay Judd has been named the new executive director of the St. Charles History Museum.
Judd replaces Alison Costanzo, who had served in the post since 2015. She left the position at the end of March to become the new executive director at the Lombard Historical Society.
She brings more than six years of prior museum experience to her new institution. Judd began her career as an intern at the St. Charles History Museum in 2009, and from there went on to become heritage interpreter at Kline Creek Farm in West Chicago.
In 2013, Judd was hired as Executive Director at the Mount Prospect Historical Society, where she worked for six years. Judd said she is excited to return to St. Charles as executive director of the St. Charles History Museum.
“St. Charles has an amazing and lengthy history with all kinds of great stories and interesting figures,” Judd said in a news release from the St. Charles History Museum. “I couldn’t be more excited to step into this new role and to help tell the stories of this city and its people."
Stepping into the position, Judd said she looks to build upon the museum’s newly-introduced strategic plan and to continue working to solidify the museum’s role as an integral resource for the community and a valuable partner in the future.
“We are very pleased with our decision to hire Lindsay,” Museum Board President Mike Corbett said in the release. “She brings a high level of enthusiasm, passion and dedication to our institution, and we are excited to see what she does for her community’s museum.”
