President and CEO Tom McKinney To Leave Tucson Symphony Orchestra

(Tucson, AZ)─The Tucson Symphony Orchestra announced today that after two seasons as President and CEO Tom McKinney will leave the post March 1.  McKinney joined the TSO staff in 2015 as Vice President of Development and was promoted to President and CEO in April 2017. McKinney is joining Interfaith Community Services (ICS) as their CEO on March 2.

Autumn van den Berg, Chair of the Tucson Symphony Board of Trustees, commented: “Tom has been a positive force in the life of the Tucson Symphony Orchestra for over three years.   His inclusiveness brought us closer to the entire community and his energetic commitment to the TSO’s future propelled each pillar of our mission; Programming, Engagement, Partnership and Learning.”

McKinney states:  “To work with this city’s top music organization was an honor and allowed me to reach back to my roots in Up With People.  I am so proud to have had the opportunity to renovate Tucson Symphony Center, increase donor participation and stewardship, and forge a multi-year agreement with our professional musicians.  I will always treasure the TSO and the relationships I built here.”

The Board is initiating a transition and search process.
