The Lincoln Center, in New York City, has this week announced Henry Timms as its new President – effective from May of this year.
Recognized as the world’s largest performing arts complex, the Lincoln Center contributes $2.4 billion annually toward New York’s economy.
A fellow of Stanford University and co-author of the best-seller book New Power – How Power Works in Our Hyperconnected World and How to Make it Work for You, Mr Timms currently serves as President and CEO of New York’s 92nd Street Y.
He will succeed Deborah L. Spar in the leadership role – who stepped down in April of last year.
“This is a great partnership for our shared future,” New York Philharmonic President and CEO Deborah Borda has said.
