JAMESTOWN – One of the leading arts organizations in Chautauqua County has found its new executive director.
The Reg Lenna Center For the Arts board of director has appointed Kathleen Eads to the position of Executive Director. A native of California, Eads has been working in theater and performing arts for over 25 years, most recently as Managing Director of the Antaeus Company in Los Angeles. During the last decade, she has also worked for Disney Theatrical as their Senior Broadway Marketing Manager and was also instrumental in the creation of Baruch College’s Performing Arts Center, serving as its first General Manager and Director.
Eads’ appointment was made following a comprehensive search and interview process by both the Reg Lenna’s board of directors, staff and various community partners. Her first day on the job will be Monday, January 6.
Eads says she looks forward to utilizing her broad background in the arts to serve the Reg Lenna Center For The Arts and the greater Jamestown Community. Under her direction, the organization will continue to work with community organizations, sponsors, production partners and schools to bring a diverse season of arts and educational opportunities to the area. The Reg Lenna Center for the Arts is also the license holder for WRFA Radio in Jamestown.
Earlier this year, the Reg Lenna Civic Center and the Arts Council for Chautauqua County merged to become one agency, now known as the Reg Lenna Center for the Arts. Neither organization has had an executive director for the past several years.
