NORWALK -

Maritime Aquarium has removed its president after just three months on the job.

In a statement Monday, the Aquarium wrote, "The Board of Trustees relieved Maureen Hanley as president and chief executive officer."

They called the removal a "personnel matter" and say no other information will be released.  

Dave Truedson has been appointed to interim president.         

Hanley was reportedly on the job for only three months before she was quietly removed from her post in February.
