L.A Music Center president becomes LA Opera COO
November 17, 2008 § Leave a comment
Stephen Rountree, president of the LA Music Center, will now take over as Chief Operating Officer of the LA Opera in addition to his previous job. Since the spring of 2007, LA Opera board president, Marc I. Stern, has filled in as COO on a voluntary basis. Due to the economic crisis, Stern, a senior officer at a global financial services company, has been forced to focus his work back to his day job.
Rountree will now work alongside Artistic Director, Placido Domingo as co-leaders of the company. His past experience as executive vice president and chief operating officer of the Getty Trust, combined with his knowledge of the Music Center, where LA Opera resides, will hopefully serve him and the company well.
