The board of directors of San Diego Theatres, Inc (SDT) appointed Carol Wallace as Interim CEO of the organization which manages and operates San Diego Civic and Balboa Theatres.
“We are extremely excited to have Carol step in and serve to ensure that the San Diego Theatres continues to be successfully managed,” said San Diego Theatres Board Chair Jim Waring. “Her prior experience with our operation gives her an essential perspective that will allow her to hit the ground running as together we implement a strategic planning review of the organization that is focused on its mission of providing top tier leading performing arts for the region of San Diego and beyond.” The board anticipates beginning the search for a new CEO following the completion of the strategic planning process.
