While all types of stuff are happening in the Dallas arts neighborhood like Dallas Museum of Arts Senior Curator of Contemporary Art Gavin Delahunty‘s unexpected resignation, the Dallas Symphony Association have good news with the announcement of a new president/CEO, who will be in place on Monday, January 22. Dallas Symphony Association board of Governors Chair Sanjiv Yajnik announced that Kim Noltemy has been selected to head up the DSO.
Having been associated with the Boston Symphony Orchestra since 1996, where she held various positions including Director of Sales and Marketing, Chief Marketing Officer and most recently Chief Operation and Communications Officers.
She has also served as president of the non-profit Boston 4 Celebration that produces Boston’s ever popular Fourth of July festivities.
According to Sanjiv, “Kim comes to the Dallas Symphony with decades of experience at one of the world’s top orchestras. She combines a profound knowledge of orchestra management with a stellar reputation for growing an orchestra’s brand in and beyond its hometown. We welcome Kim to Dallas, and we look forward to working with her to continue the DSO’s commitment to artistic excellence, while reimagining what an orchestra can be.”
Since former DSA President/CEO Jonathan Martin’s announcement of his departure in June, Michelle Miller Burns has served as Interim President/CEO. Plans call for her to “continue as Executive Vice President for Institutional Advancement and Chief Operating Officer. She will work closely with Yajnik and Noltemy to ensure a seamless transition.”
