Announcing the Departure of PHT Managing Director

January 04th, 2018
The Presentation House Theatre (PHT) Board of Directors has announced that Managing Director, Marc-Andre Boyes-Manseau, is leaving the organization to take up a position as Administrative Director at Ottawa’s Nouvelle Scene. Marc-Andre has been with PHT since May 2015, and has played a significant role in the financial turn-around of the company.  He leaves the organization with two years of surpluses and a sustainable business model. A search for a new Managing Director will begin in January, 2018. (Job Posting)
“While we are sad to see Marc-Andre go, we would like to wish him well in his new position and thank him for his work here at PHT for the past few years,” says Rod Pearce, PHT Board Chair. “We have enjoyed working with him, and really appreciate all the effort he put into helping PHT to be a successful and strong organization. During his time here we went from a challenging financial picture into a healthy surplus and a bright future. Marc-Andre is leaving PHT in a much better position, and that’s a real credit to his efforts.  He and Artistic Director, Kim Selody worked well together and have a transition plan in place with Arts Management Consultant Ben Shockey for a 3-month term to oversee financial operations, and lead our search for the right administrative leadership to take us into the next, exciting phase of the organization.”
Marc-Andre’s last day at PHT is January 11, 2018.
