Most Development Directors move quite often from job to job. The highest turnover in ANY company is in the development department. I would not be surprised if ABT had been functioning very well with an acting director for a long time. SFB was without a Development Director for six months.

Actually, in my experience (which is admittedly more in theater than in dance), it is the marketing department that tends to have the highest rate of turnover. <P>I think it also depends on the particular responsibility of each development director (and probably the size of the company) as to whether an organization can comfortably function without one for even six months. If the company is large administratively, with individual officers overseeing specific areas like major gifts, annual fund, corporations, etc., then yes, I think you could function tolerably without a development director. But in many mid-size organizations (where the entire development department might only consist of two or three persons), the development director is much more hands on, so their absence would be more significant. I guess you're right, though- ABT and San Francisco Ballet are probably big enough that they have enough staff to get by.

From the Los Angeles Times:

Globe picks exec director
San Diego theaters hire former Pacific Symphony and ABT executive director.




By Don Shirley, Times Staff Writer

Quote:
Louis G. Spisto, executive director of Orange County's Pacific Symphony from 1987 to 1998 and of New York's American Ballet Theatre for a stormy two years, now has the same position at Globe Theatres in San Diego.

Spisto resigned from ABT under pressure in 2001, after several staff resignations, rocky relations with some board members, and an ousted employee's claim of sex and age discrimination. That was resolved in a settlement with ABT, the employee said. But during Spisto's ABT years, income and touring weeks increased.

After years of financial struggle and a revolving door of executive directors, officials at American Ballet Theater say they feel lucky to have a chairman who has expanded the company's operations largely at his own expense. <a href=http://www.nytimes.com/2003/07/07/arts/dance/07BALL.html target=_blank>more</a>

Ballet Theater's Director of Turnaround
by ROSLYN SULCAS for the New York Times

Since Ms. Moore took over, Ballet Theater's endowment has risen from $8 million to $15 million; its City Center season this fall showed box office gains of 30 percent over the previous year; and for the first time in six years, an operating deficit has disappeared and a modest surplus is projected when audit results are released next week.
