AT&T Performing Arts Center president and CEO resigned
Mark Nerenhausen's resignation is effective immediately.
DALLAS AT&T Performing Arts Center announced today that it has accepted the resignation of President and CEO Mark Nerenhausen, effective immediately. Doug Curtis, the AT&T PAC’s senior vice president and general manager, has been named interim CEO. A national search is underway for Nerenhausen's successor.
“The AT&T Performing Arts Center has gone through incredible growth and change over the past two years, and Mark provided invaluable leadership for us at a critical time,” said Howard Hallam, chair of the AT&T Performing Arts Center Board of Directors. “We are grateful for Mark’s hard work during the launch of our new institution, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
“I came to Dallas to work with the remarkable team opening the new performing arts center, and I am proud of what we have accomplished. I’m glad to have had the opportunity to have been here at such a significant time in AT&T PAC’s development as an institution,” said Nerenhausen.
The AT&T Performing Arts Center opened in October 2009 to critical acclaim from arts and architecture critics around the world. The $354 million campaign to build the center was a decade-long project spearheaded by private citizens within the community and funded with more than 95% of the capital funds raised through private sources. Since the grand opening in October, the center has played a vital role in the community through its diverse programming, educational activities and as a catalyst for further development in the downtown Dallas Arts District.
