South Arts Extends Search for New ED

Posted: Monday, July 23rd, 2012 at 5:57 pm in Job Announcements

The search committee of the board of directors continues to seek highly qualified candidates for the next Executive Director of South Arts. As we have considered leading candidates over the past several months, we have reaffirmed our search priorities for a visionary and proactive strategic leader who will be able to take South Arts to the next level of excellence.

We are seeking an executive who will maintain and strengthen the current portfolio of activities, while also designing new, innovative and entrepreneurial initiatives that increase South Arts influence and impact. In order to do so, the candidate chosen must demonstrate extensive success in generating revenue streams from a variety of funding sources.

Transition-Guides will be contacting key leaders in the arts industry nationwide to solicit nominations and applications from the field, regularly updating the search committee on their progress.

A position profile for ideal candidates is available on our website (see the profile). Further updates on our progress will be posted there periodically.

While this important search is taking longer than initially envisioned, we continue to look forward to a smooth transition. Gerri Combs will continue as executive director for the immediate future, with the support of her strong leadership team and dedicated staff.

We welcome your input on prospective nominees and invite you to share the attached profile as appropriate and to communicate with our search consultant, Jeanie Duncan, at or by calling 301-439-6635.
