From a Seattle Symphony press release…

Seattle Symphony Board Chair Leslie Jackson Chihuly announced the appointment of current Seattle Symphony Vice President of Development Mark McCampbell to the position of Interim Executive Director. McCampbell has 30 years of non-profit leadership and fundraising experience and was brought into the organization by current Executive Director Thomas Philion. Philion, who has served as Executive Director since 2007, will continue to work with the organization as Senior Advisor in the coming months. Philion decided in December not to seek renewal of his contract. A search for a new President & Executive Director is underway, led by search committee chair and longtime board member Marco Abbruzzese.

  1. Zach,
    Do you know, or could you find out:
    1) Why we need an Interim Executive Director, when Thomas Philion is still here?

    2) What are Marc McCambell’s musical credentials?

    3) I assume Marc McCampell’s salary will increase. What about Mr. Philion’s?

    4) What does a Senior Advisor DO?
