DSO Snagging Bill Lively, Ctd.

Just back from the coronation . . . er, introduction . . of Bill Lively as the new president/CEO of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Asked how he was going to meet the DSO’s goal of raising $150 million within five years, the current president/CEO of the North Texas Super Bowl Host Committee said,

“We have to address the culture of the organization. We’ve got to understand the core mission and then create a different environment and process to raise money, because we can’t do it like we’ve been doing it over the past few years.”

To help him focus entirely on this breathtaking task, Lively has “resigned from all my boards.”

First approached about the position in late October or early November, Lively admitted that the job “came out of right field.”
