ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta’s High Museum of Art has a new director.

The museum said in a news release Wednesday that Randall Suffolk will succeed Michael E. Shapiro, who’s stepping down on Friday after 15 years leading the High. Suffolk is currently director and president of the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Suffolk is set to step into his new role on Nov. 2. He has more than two decades of experience as a museum professional, including 15 years as a director.

He was selected though an international search overseen by a committee appointed by the museum’s board.

Before joining Philbrook, Suffolk was the director of The Hyde Collection Art Museum in Glens Falls, New York, from 1999 through 2007. He previously held positions there as deputy director and curator.
