SANTA FE ― New Mexico Historic Sites have named two new deputy directors to assist in oversight of the State’s eight Historic Sites.
Promoted from within the Historic Sites’ staff, Tim Roberts was named deputy director for Facilities and Interpretation.
“Now that we are fully staffed with two skilled professionals positioned as deputy directors, New Mexico’s Historic Sites will see direct benefit in our fiscal and facilities management,” said Executive Director Patrick Moore of New Mexico Historic Sites. “Tim Roberts is well-versed on the challenges of managing facilities at our eight diverse sites.
Roberts hails originally from the state of Florida but has been working as a professional historian in the Southwest for more than five years. Roberts earned his BA in History and MA in Historic Preservation from the University of West Florida.
Following tenures at public institutions including West Florida Historic Preservation, Inc., he moved to the private sector where he served as a project manager for Historical Research Associates, one of the oldest and most respected cultural resource management firms in the country. It was during his time at HRA that Roberts began working in the southwest, specifically New Mexico. He returned to the public sector in 2016 when he accepted a position with the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs and took over management of Lincoln and Fort Stanton historic sites before moving into his role as deputy director for Facilities and Interpretation.
