I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I am Brent Mason, the new Executive Director here at the Foss Waterway Seaport. I am incredibly humbled and honored to have the opportunity to advance the Seaport’s role as the Puget Sound’s maritime heritage education and event center where families, groups and communities come to discover, explore, learn and play.
As someone who supports inclusiveness, genuinely welcomes and celebrates diverse voices and perspectives and enjoys working in a learning-centered environment, I am excited about the museum’s potential. I look forward to building upon the Seaport’s programs as well as initiating others and overall expand the capacity of the organization to advance its mission and vision.
I am lucky to be joining a fantastic team and an inspiring community. I am excited to learn more about the rich history of the waterfront, to get to know the community, to meet the people and to explore the challenges as we work together in helping the Seaport be all that it can be.
I welcome your feedback and suggestions. I leave you with this quote from an unknown, but obviously very wise seaman, “You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.”
