Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation


Palmerini departs for new opportunities

22 March 2022

After eight years with us Operations Coordinator Matteo Palmerini is leaving the Institute on 23 March 2022 to take a new position closer to home. He joined us at the end of July 2014 as Housekeeper and in 2015 assumed the additional responsibilities of Operations Assistant. By August 2019 he was promoted to Operations Coordinator. By August 2020, to keep busy, he began scanning items for Archives. We wish him well in his new career, but we will miss him greatly. We will detail his many achievements in the upcoming spring issue of our Bulletin.
