NEW YORK: The New 42nd Street, the nonprofit that supports the New Victory Theater and the New 42nd Street Studios, has announced a variety of leadership changes following the appointment of Russell Granet as president and CEO back in June. The company has named Mary Rose Lloyd their new artistic director, among other staffing changes.
In addition to Granet and Lloyd, other hiring changes include the promotion of Lisa Lawer Post to COO; the promotion of Lauren Fitzgerald to vice president of marketing and communications; and the hiring of Elizabeth Hines as vice president of finance.
“The New 42 has really evolved over the last several years to expand its programs, further its reach, and deepen its impact across the city to invite New Yorkers of all ages to experience and participate in the performing arts,” Granet said in a statement, commenting on the women promoted and hired by the nonprofit. “These extraordinary women have committed their work to young people, artists, and educators, and I’m happy to recognize them for their years of dedication to the nonprofit.”
Granet comes to the New 42nd Street from Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, where he served as the executive director of Lincoln Center Education and was acting president from April 2018 to May 2019.
Lloyd, previously the director of artistic programming for the New 42nd Street, has served as a member of the advisory board for the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, and has served on fundraising panels for the New York State Council on the Arts, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour. She is also currently a trustee of the Chocolate Factory Theater.
