National Corvette Museum introduces new CEO

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- The National Corvette Museum’s soon-to-be President and CEO has big plans for organization. He’s taking the place of current CEO Wendall Strode who is leaving the position July 1 after 23 years at the museum.

Dr. Sean Preston says his love for cars started as a child, when he collected Hot Wheels.

He comes all the way from Portland, Oregon to assume the new role. His previous roles include 12 years as a non-profit president, and Executive Director of Cypress Heights Academy in Baton Rouge, LA.

Preston has extensive educational background, earning degrees from the University of Georgia, Troy University and Liberty University.

His goal as new CEO is to increase the educational aspect of the museum.

“There’s so much to learn about these cars. Engineering, mathematics, there’s a lot that goes into building and designing a car. Many people don’t know much about that,” said Preston.

Preston will start his new role on July 1st.  Strode will remain employed by the museum through the end of the year to assist in the transition.
