Naomi Grabel has abruptly left her post as director of marketing and creative services at Carnegie Hall to become CEO of the American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
She starts work in three weeks’ time.
All well at Carnegie Hall?
David Hirsch, President of the Board of the American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, announced today that the Board, following a unanimous recommendation of a search committee, has appointed Naomi Grabel as the AFIPO’s first Chief Executive Officer effective December 12, 2016.
Mr. Hirsch states: “Ms. Grabel’s extensive background made her a great candidate, but it was her vision that ultimately led to her selection as our very first CEO. The board of the AFIPO has found in Naomi a leader who will focus not only on development but on increasing our footprint through social media to a much larger, more diverse, and younger audience. We recognize that young people are looking to connect with Israel in many ways, and as Israel’s greatest non-political ambassador, we fill a very clear and important space.”
