Mindy Rosen will become the first-ever executive director of Music Hall, the Board of Friends of Music Hall — having just wrapped up a two-year strategic planning process — announced on Tuesday. She will step into the newly created role starting Dec. 30 of this year.
Rosen previously worked for 12 years as nonprofit Downtown Cincinnati Inc.’s interim president and executive vice president in charge of marketing and communications. Prior to moving to the Queen City, she led fundraising and community engagement for nonprofits in Denver and Los Angeles, according to a press release.
“As we looked to the future and the aggressive goals Friends of Music Hall has set for membership growth, fundraising for future preservation projects and community engagement at large, we agreed the time was right to hire an Executive Director to drive these initiatives,” Peter Koeing, Friends of Music Hall Board President, says in the release. “We are thrilled that we have someone of the caliber of Mindy to join our organization.”
Cincinnati Magazine named Rosen one of 2019’s 300 most powerful business leaders. She also serves as a board member of the Alliance Francaise de Cincinnati, a regional nonprofit /French cultural institution that aims to partner with other groups in Greater Cincinnati and bring events to the area.
As executive director, Rosen will oversee day-to-day operations, including responsibility for tours, education programming, volunteer outreach, advertising, special events, community engagement, membership growth and future capital campaigns, the press release says.
