Following a ten-month national search, Pioneer Theatre Company announces that Christopher Massimine will join the company on July 1, 2019 as the theatre’s managing director.
Massimine will succeed Chris Lino, who will retire on June 30 after managing the professional regional theatre for twenty-eight years. Massimine will partner with Artistic Director Karen Azenberg in leading the company.
“I want to welcome Chris Massimine to the PTC family and to the thriving arts community here in Salt Lake City,” said Azenberg. “In Chris, we’ve found a creative business leader who brings skills and a set of experiences that will help ensure our continued growth in a changing professional theatre environment. I believe together we will accomplish more than that which either of us would be able to do so individually, as we shepherd Pioneer Theatre Company into a new era of leadership.”
“The addition of Chris Massimine to Pioneer Theatre Company is a tremendous win for the university and the arts community in Utah. Chris has a proven track record of success and is well positioned to move the company forward building on the legacy of his predecessor, Chris Lino,” said Dan Reed, senior vice president for academic affairs for the University of Utah.
Massimine is a two-time Tony Award-nominated producer and leading arts executive.
