Debra Grossman, President of Merrimack Repertory Theatre’s Board of Trustees, and Artistic Director Charles Towers have announced that MRT has engaged executive search consultants AlbertHall&Associates to conduct a nationwide search for a new Executive Director to partner with Towers. Current Executive Director Tom Parrish will be leaving his post at the end of February to become Executive Director of Geva Theatre Center in Rochester, New York. Parrish announced his upcoming departure in December and has been assisting in the transition process with a team comprised of trustees and staff members. General Manager Edgar Cyrus, a 15-year employee of MRT with over 30 years of arts management experience, will assume the role of Interim Managing Director during the transition and search process, which is expected to last four to six months. A search committee, chaired by trustee Robert McDonald and composed of current and former trustees, will work closely with AlbertHall&Associates.

AlbertHall&Associates is a national leader in executive placement for arts professionals, having placed dozens of senior leaders throughout North America. AHA is a full-service consulting and executive search firm providing support to many of America’s most prestigious arts and entertainment companies, nonprofit organizations and allied agencies. Their team of professionals have decades of combined experience with such major institutions as Carnegie Hall, Center Theatre Group, the Getty, Disney Companies, the Old Globe Theatre, the Stratford Festival, Duke University, the Sydney Opera House, Goodman Theatre, Sea World, Inc., the Guthrie Theatre and the San Francisco Opera, among many others.

AHA Principal Christine O’Connor will meet with trustees and staff next week to develop Merrimack Rep’s attractive job profile. Finalists are expected to visit Lowell in the spring.
