Joffrey Ballet's Executive Director Plans Departure

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Christopher Clinton Conway, who has been associated with the Joffrey Ballet since 2005, and has served as its executive director since 2008, will be stepping down from his position in mid-April.

An attorney with a background in tax and complex gifts, Conway helped oversee the completion of the company's largest capital campaign in its long history as it planned and moved into its permanent home in the Joffrey Tower on State and Randolph.

A national search is being set in motion to find a replacement. In the meantime, Kathleen Hechinger, who has been CFO of the Joffrey since 2010, will serve as interim executive director. Conway has not yet announced his next endeavor.

The Joffrey's artistic staff, including artistic director Ashley Wheater, will remain unchanged.
