When Tania Castroverde Moskalenko was whispered to be the new chief executive officer of the Center for the Performing Arts almost five years ago, we were excited about the future of the campus. Her proven leadership and fiscal expertise, as well as prowess with respect to bookings and staff and funding development in suburban Memphis, were exactly what the Center required.
Now that she is headed to Roosevelt University in a similar position at the fabled Chicago Auditorium, we believe the Center is in a terrific position to be taken farther down the trails she blazed.
Chicago’s gain is our loss, certainly, but we’re grateful for her accomplishments, and we know the auditorium is in excellent hands.
Whoever is tapped to replace Tania will have some rather large boots to fill. Hers has been a job very well done, and although we are sorry to see her go, we’re confident interim CEO Jeff McDermott and the search committee will find a candidate to carry on what she launched.
Good luck, Tania, and knock ’em dead!
