The New England operation will be managed by David Whitemyer, the firm’s newly appointed Director of Business Development.

Whitemyer is a licensed architect with over two decades of experience in museum exhibition design and project management.
“Luci Creative is thrilled to extend our reach and continue to grow! The decision to expand our presence into the Boston area was a logical next step in our development strategy. Our team is excited to be a new, valuable resource and thought-partner to East Coast cultural institutions. With an office in Boston we can further expand our access to creative talent and capabilities as well as increase our ability to serve current and future markets and clients.” said AJ Goehle, Director of Strategy & Design.
“David is a huge asset for the Luci team, bringing over twenty years of museum planning and design experience. He has completed projects for major institutions such as the Virginia Historical Society, the New England Aquarium, various Smithsonian Museums, the National Park Service, the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor, and the National Museum of the United States Army; Luci is eager to partner with similar institutions,” said Goehle
Whitemyer has strong roots in Boston and previously served as the Director of Experience Design at Boston Productions (BPI), and as Director of Production at Christopher Chadbourne and Associates, a Boston-area exhibit design firm.
He teaches two graduate courses for the Museum Studies program at Johns Hopkins University, and has also taught in the architecture department at Wentworth Institute of Technology. A voice for the industry, Whitemyer has been published by the National Association of Museum Exhibitors, Harvard Management Update, Iowa Architect, PM Career Track, and the International Interior Design Association. As a volunteer, David is a member of the South Shore Charter Public School Board of Trustees, in Norwell, Massachusetts, having served three terms as the Board Chair.
“I am beyond excited to be on board with Luci Creative, helping to serve more East Coast clients, and to forge new relationships for the company by engaging friendships and connections that I have with partners and past clients,” said Whitemyer. “Luci Creative is a truly talented and proven group that brings huge potential to the museum and cultural industry. I’m eager to work with AJ and the team, sharing Luci’s skills and services with high-profile east coast projects. Having a presence here will strengthen that reach.”
