SHEBOYGAN, WI (October 1, 2018) - The Stefanie H. Weill Center for Performing Arts Board of Directors is pleased to announce Katy Glodosky as the Executive Director of the community’s historic, 1,100-seat nonprofit theater, located in the heart of downtown Sheboygan.
“We are excited to have Katy join our team with her expertise in nonprofit management, fundraising, event production, and communications,” said Ken King, president of the Board of Directors at the Weill Center. “We are confident her experience and enthusiasm match the needs of this community’s vibrant theater.”
In this new role, Glodosky will build strategic partnerships with individuals, corporations and foundations, matching their interests and resources with the Weill Center’s goals and experiences. Through this work, Glodosky will help ensure the community can enjoy live music from all genres and decades, comedy, dance, family events, symphony performances, movies and more for many years to come.
“With Katy on board, the Weill Center can continue to entertain and inspire all who enter our doors,” said Kimberly Meller, general manager. “As the Weill Center enters our busy season, we look forward to having her work with our team to create exceptional experiences and fill the theater with excitement at each event.”
In her most recent tenure, Glodosky served as public relations advisor at Kane Communications Group, working with leaders in the entertainment industry, nonprofit, government, healthcare, and social services. She used strategic communications, including media and community relations, storytelling and more to engage audiences, change behaviors and drive action to meet business goals. As the company’s first employee, she assisted with business operations and helped the firm grow to nearly ten employees and $5 million in revenue within three years.
Glodosky’s past experience includes corporate fundraising and event management for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, nonprofit management for Playworks Wisconsin in its inaugural years, and leadership roles on several nonprofit boards including Women for MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer).
