Executive Director

The executive director assumes responsibility for the management of all human and financial resources needed to achieve the orchestra’s mission. To that end, the executive director is accountable for all aspects of the organization and for implementing policies set by the board of directors. Executive directors set the tone for organizational operations, formulating and carrying out policies and programs related to administrative, budgetary, staffing, fund-raising, and advocacy activities, and this position will often be a public face for the orchestra in community activities and patron/donor relations. The multi-faceted responsibilities call for an individual with demonstrated leadership skills and extensive management experience, the ability to assemble an effective staff, work effectively with board and community members, and collaborate with artistic personnel to ensure the integrity and growth of orchestra programming.
