DPAA ANNOUNCES NEW CFO AND DIRECTOR OF PRODUCTION OPERATIONS
(DAYTON, OH - August 15, 2012) Paul Helfrich, President and CEO of the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance, has announced two key positions with the newly merged arts organization.
Teri Warwick will be joining the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance as Chief Financial Officer. Teri comes to the DPAA from the United Way of Greater Dayton, where she has served as Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer since 2009. Prior to that, she was the CFO for the Dayton Art Institute from 1998 to 2009. Teri’s experience also includes CFO with HOK/K Industrial and work as a Senior Auditor with Deloitte & Touche.
Matt Borger, former Director of Operations for the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, has been named Director of Production Operations for the DPAA. Matt was DPO’s Orchestra Manager from 1992-1994 before becoming the Philharmonic’s Director of Operations. He was an Associate Faculty of Music member at Wright State University from 1981 to 1988 and worked with the Milwaukee Symphony and Brooklyn (New York) Philharmonic.
The DPAA is the result of the merger of Dayton’s three classical performing arts organizations -- Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera and Dayton Philharmonic – into an unprecedented single entity on July 1, 2012.
Dayton Performing Arts Alliance funding is provided in part by Miriam Rosenthal Memorial Trust Fund, Montgomery County Arts & Cultural District, Culture Works, and the Ohio Arts Council, a state agency created to foster and encourage the development of the arts and to preserve Ohio's cultural heritage. Funding from the Ohio Arts Council is an investment of state tax dollars that promotes economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohio residents. The DPAA is the also proud recipient of a 12-13 season grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
