Tuesday, January 12, 2016 by Nora Ankrum

The Long Center for the Performing Arts is officially in search of a new president and CEO to replace Jamie Grant, whose resignation was announced today. Grant will remain with the Long Center until April, after which he will move to St. Paul, Minnesota, to serve as president and CEO of the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts. “Jamie Grant has been a game-changer for the Long Center,” said Marc Seriff, the Long Center’s vice president of special projects, in a press release about the resignation. “He has created a culture of success, and built the staff to execute it.” Seriff, as the new interim president and CEO, will be leading a global search for Grant’s successor. “The job of our search will be finding the right person to … continue the amazing momentum that Jamie has built,” he said.
