  • Continue a productive partnership with the Artistic Director and Board to implement the KCB’s current strategic planning process and develop future strategies.
  • Align all human and financial resources strategically, ensuring the artistic/business model is solid, sustaining and further developing the fiscal viability of the organization to sustain and enhance the growth and quality of KCB’s product for its audience.
  • Manage and develop a high-functioning team. Direct reports include the Chief Philanthropic Director, Director of Marketing, Director of Community Engagement & Education, CFO, COO, Finance, the Executive Assistant, and any other positions that fall under the administrative functions of the Company.
  • Serve as a principal, and be responsible for, in developing creative, viable, productive and successful fundraising, especially with major and prospective donors, and continue the nurturing and growth of long-held partnerships.
  • Ensure that KCB has effective communication and marketing efforts, with a focus on increasing ticket sales, audience engagement, and subscriptions targeting the growth and depth of KCB’s audience.
  • In concert with the Artistic Director, strive to create a positive and productive culture, providing leadership that will generate innovation throughout a diverse team.
