Businessman and philanthropist Michael A. Nemeroff will take the helm as Chairman of the Board of the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts effective September 27, 2017.
The announcement was made after the organization’s Board meeting today by current Chairman David C. Bohnett who will simultaneously assume a new leadership position as Chairman of the Executive Committee charged with leadership initiatives critical to the future growth and success of The Wallis.
“I am delighted that Michael Nemeroff will steer The Wallis into its next chapter,” said Bohnett. “As The Wallis continues to emerge as a premier world-class performing arts institution and major cultural destination, it is vital that we continue to have strong Board leadership. Michael is a veteran non-profit board strategist who displays the successful leadership, energy and passion that will help The Wallis elevate its position on the world’s stage. In my new role as Executive Committee Chairman, I look forward to collaborating closely with Michael and my fellow Board members. On behalf of our Board, Artistic Director Paul Crewes, Managing Director Rachel Fine and the entire staff, we welcome Michael and look forward to building on the momentum created over the past seasons.”
