Park City Institute Announce Changes To Leadership

Park City Institute

With the new year comes new faces for the Park City Institute.

Teri Orr, the executive director of Park City Institute for the past two decades announced in the fall she was stepping down from her role at the Institute in the Spring of this year. On Thursday afternoon the organization released more information on what is in store for the Institute’s future.

Effective March 1st, Orr will transition from her current role as executive director to a new one, as Founder and Director Emeritus.

Stepping up to lead the organization will be Ari Ioannides who will serve as Managing Director. Ioannides has worked as a tech entrepreneur, most recently founding BootUp, which trains teachers and district coaches how to teach elementary computer science to students. Ioannides also serves as the vice chair of the board of directors for Recycle Utah.

Ionnides says the focus of the institute will be on creating a sustainable model for the organization from its finances to its programming. He also said he was grateful that Orr will remain with the organization in her new role.

Interim Board of Directors Chair Jason Owen said after considering strategic options and consulting with other foundations and donors over a six-month period, the board feels that the collective alignment would ensure the long-term success of the Park City Institute.

The Park City Institute’s 2019-2020 Main Stage Season has several shows left include Nat Geo Live shows, dance performances and musical guests. You can find tickets here.
