Deputy Director Mauritshuis Announces Departure
Deputy Director Victor Moussault (1956) will leave his position at the Mauritshuis as of 1 January 2017. After ten years at the museum, he will depart at a high point, and has chosen to pursue new challenges. He will focus on project management and consultancy work, as the Chair of the Steering Committee of the renovation of Het Loo Palace and other consulting projects, such as for the Nasjonalmuseet in Oslo, Norway.
The Mauritshuis regrets the departure of Victor Moussault, but understands and respects his decision. Emilie Gordenker, Director of the Mauritshuis: ‘Victor and I have worked as a team from the beginning. I will miss him, but I also know that he is ready for a new challenge.’

Victor Moussault held the position of Deputy Director at the Mauritshuis since 1 January 2007. The main project during his time at the museum was the management of the major building project that was completed in 2014. The Mauritshuis was the first national museum in the Netherlands to manage and finance a building project itself, and not the Government Building Agency. Under his daily management, the complex building project was realised in two years – on time and within budget. He was also responsible for the contractual and financial agreements for a major travelling exhibition to Japan, the United States of America and Italy, which took place at the same time as the building project.
Victor Moussault: ‘After ten years at the Mauritshuis and after having completed a major building project, this is a very natural time to take a new step in my career. I look back on my time at the Mauritshuis with great pleasure. I am proud of what we achieved together and of the deep commitment of staff and volunteers to the museum.’
It is not yet known who will succeed Victor Moussault. The Supervisory Board of the Mauritshuis is currently recruiting a new Deputy Director.
