Park City Institute starts search for a new Executive Director

PARK CITY, Utah — On Thursday, the Park City Institute announced it is on the hunt for a New Executive Director. The position will soon be vacant as the current Executive Director, Ari Ioannides, prepares to step down and focus on his role as a Board Member. The new Executive Director will take over the leadership position effective March 1, 2023.

“We are currently in the process of kicking off our search nationwide to find an exceptional leader that can follow the work that Ari has accomplished,” said Jason Owen, a long-time Board member at the Institute. “At the same time, it would be amazing to find a local candidate that understands the uniqueness of Park City and is looking for a special challenge.”

The Park City Institute was founded in 1998 to enrich the community through experiences from emerging artists, musicians, theater productions, and other creative experiences.

As the current Executive Director, Ioannides took office on March 1, 2020, with that mission statement in mind. He guided the non-profit organization through the Covid-19 pandemic while instituting changes and strengthening community ties.

“Diversity in arts and culture are essential elements of strong communities,” said Michael Hanahan, Vice Chair of Park City Institute. “Ari’s leadership and commitment to excellence throughout every aspect of the organization, during some of the most challenging times in recent memory, will have a significant impact on our community for decades to come.”

Ioannides’ impact on the organization is evident with board members thanking him for his leadership and citing his critical contributions to the organization’s success while looking forward to the future.

“Ari outperformed expectations to revitalize one of the most important performing arts organizations in our community, ensuring that Park City Institute is set up for success over the coming decades,” said Betsy Wallace, a member of the Institute’s Board of Directors. “We owe a debt of gratitude to Ari, and we are excited for his next chapter as a Board member during this transition.”
