The new head of the county's museums services said he was looking forward to working with Norfolk's 'world-class collections and stunning sites' when he begins the role in June.
Steve Miller will replace Vanessa Trevelyan, who will retire from the Museums and Archaeology Service at the end of this month.
The 42-year-old father-of-two has nearly 20 years experience in the cultural, heritage and tourism sectors in the UK. He comes to Norfolk having been chief executive of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust in Shropshire and director of the Norton Priory Museum Trust in Cheshire before that.
Mr Miller said: 'I am very excited to be joining the prestigious Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service, with its world-class collections and its stunning sites.
'I look forward to working with councillors, staff, volunteers and partners in carrying the service forward to even greater heights.'
