ISO fills chair for general manager

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra has gone South to fill its open position for vice president and general manager.
 
Daniel Beckley, the 34-year-old former executive director of the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, will assume the role on Aug. 12, the ISO announced Friday. Beckley fills the position vacated in February by Thomas Ramsey, who retired after 29 years with the ISO.

Beckley brings a varied resume with experience as a professional musician and an executive in the private sector. He graduated from James Madison University and Northwestern University with both a bachelor's and master's degree in music. As a bass trombonist, he has performed with several regional orchestras across the United States.

He also served as president of BlueKey Web Solutions, a Charleston, S.C.-based Web design firm, during a 2005-2010 tenure with the company.

With the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, Beckley oversaw all the artistic, education and business activities of the group. Under his leadership, the organization achieved significant growth in its subscription and donor base, recorded budget surpluses in consecutive years, and launched a successful Chamber Orchestra series, according to the ISO.

With the ISO, Beckley will have overall responsibility for the orchestra and the Hilbert Circle Theatre, including concert planning and logistics, productions, contracts, and budgets.

“This role will be instrumental in helping to shape and execute the ISO’s future plans, and I am confident that we’ve found the right person in Danny," said Gary Ginstling, CEO of the orchestra.

When Ginstling arrived at the ISO in February, he faced three open upper-management positions on the executive team. Beckley is his second major hire. Holly C. Johnson joined the ISO as vice president of development this month.

The orchestra still is searching for a vice president of finance. Indiana Repertory Theatre CFO Suzanne Sweeney agreed to take the position earlier this year, but instead opted to stay with the IRT and become its managing director and chief operating officer.

  1. If I were a developer I would be looking at the Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods instead of Broad Ripple. I would avoid the dysfunctional BRVA with all of their headaches. It's like deciding between a Blackberry or an iPhone 5s smartphone. BR is greatly in need of updates. It has become stale and outdated. Whereas Fountain Square, Fletcher Place and Mass Ave have become the "new" Broad Ripples. Every time I see people on the strip in BR on the weekend I want to ask them, "How is it you are not familiar with Fountain Square or Mass Ave? You have choices and you choose BR?" Long vacant storefronts like the old Scholar's Inn Bake House and ZA, both on prominent corners, hurt the village's image. Many business on the strip could use updated facades. Cigarette butt covered sidewalks and graffiti covered walls don't help either. The whole strip just looks like it needs to be power washed. I know there is more to the BRV than the 700-1100 blocks of Broad Ripple Ave, but that is what people see when they think of BR. It will always be a nice place live, but is quickly becoming a not-so-nice place to visit.

  2. I sure hope so and would gladly join a law suit against them. They flat out rob people and their little punk scam artist telephone losers actually enjoy it. I would love to run into one of them some day!!

  3. Biggest scam ever!! Took 307 out of my bank ac count. Never received a single call! They prey on new small business and flat out rob them! Do not sign up with these thieves. I filed a complaint with the ftc. I suggest doing the same ic they robbed you too.

  4. Woohoo! We're #200!!! Absolutely disgusting. Bring on the congestion. Indianapolis NEEDS it.

  5. So Westfield invested about $30M in developing Grand Park and attendance to date is good enough that local hotel can't meet the demand. Carmel invested $180M in the Palladium - which generates zero hotel demand for its casino acts. Which Mayor made the better decision?
