Ballet San Jose Silicon Valley has identified seven potential candidates for its top management slot and hopes to fill the position by September, according to Eileen Nelson, a board member in charge of the ballet's executive search committee.
The position has been vacant since early May, when Andrew Bales stepped down as the ballet's leader. Linda Sarles, a technology marketing executive who has replaced him as the ballet's interim director, confirmed Tuesday that she will apply for the position. ``I'm really liking this,'' she said.
The other six candidates, who have not been interviewed yet, come from both the non-profit and for-profit sectors. The position's title has been changed from ``executive director'' to ``CEO'' to appeal to both groups, said Nelson, a former senior vice president of human resources with Ebay.
