The president of the Metropolitan Museum of Art is retiring next spring.

Emily Rafferty has been with the museum for 38 years; the last 10, she served as president and oversaw 1,500 employees.

Rafferty hands over her leadership as the museum prepares to embark on several new long-term initiatives.

CEO Thomas Campbell says: "The Met is known for the extraordinary dedication of its staff, but few people have had a greater impact on this Museum than she has. Over nearly 40 years, Emily has grown with the Met, rising to its challenges through the decades."

The search is now on for the next president.

A committee is being formed to develop a succession plan in the coming months. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
