President of New York’s Lincoln Center Has Resigned - Effective Immediately

Lincoln Center's President and CEO Debora Spar has resigned after just one year at the helm - effective immediately

It has been announced today that New York's Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts President and CEO Debora Spar has stepped down after just one year at the helm - effective immediately.

“The advancement of the arts is a cause very close to my heart, both on a personal and professional level, but I feel compelled at this moment to refocus on other interests,” Debora has today told her former senior team.

“As I looked back on the last 12 months, I ultimately determined that the fit I’d hoped for has not materialized,” she has said.

“We are grateful for her service and wish Debora success in the next chapter of her career,” Lincoln Center Board of Directors Chairperson, Katherine Farley has said.

Debora, who previously served as President of Barnard College, a liberal arts college for women affiliated with Columbia University, has indicated she will now refocus her attention back on academic pursuits.

Russell Granet, an existing member of Lincoln Center’s senior leadership team, will serve as acting-President - whilst a search for a successor is conducted.

Recognized as the world’s largest performing arts complex, Lincoln Center contributes $2.4 billion annually toward New York’s economy.
