San Francisco's Exploratorium has gone outside the box to find its new executive director.

Chris Flink does not have museum experience, but has deep roots in the Bay Area tech sector. For the past 19 years, Flink has been at IDEO, a design and consulting firm.

He's also taught innovation courses at Stanford. "I'm just thrilled with how the Exploratorium creates, really, innovative experiences that help people learn about the world around them, the way it intermingles sciences and art as complimentary ways to explore the world around you," Flink said.

Flink starts in June.
