Welcoming Naomi Grattan as Lougheed House’s new Executive Director


On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce the appointment of Naomi Grattan to the position of Executive Director, Lougheed House, beginning June 13, 2022.

With over 20 years of experience in museums and culture, Naomi has dedicated her career to building state-of-the-art museums and led capital campaigns across Canada and internationally – from the MacLaren Art Centre in Barrie, Ontario, to the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, to a wildlife park in the United Arab Emirates, and Calgary’s own National Music Centre.

She has worked at a senior level with the Canadian Museums Association, the National Gallery of Canada, and the International Centre for Museum Conservation in Rome. In Calgary, Naomi developed the foundational direction for the Calgary Stampede’s SAM Centre, served as interim Executive Director for the Hangar Flight Museum, and most recently she led Fort Calgary through the pandemic as President & CEO.

A founding member of the Coalition of Museums for Climate Justice, Naomi currently sits on the Alberta Museums Association Board of Directors and the Bank of Canada Museum’s national advisory board. With an MA in Museum Leadership from Royal Roads University, she has taught museum management at the post-secondary level and professional associations. Naomi also holds a BA in Rhetoric & Professional Writing from the University of Waterloo.

Lougheed House is excited to work with Naomi on its next chapter that includes Lougheed House Reimagined – a redevelopment of our permanent exhibitions to share Calgary’s stories in new, experiential and interactive ways.
