On The Beat Industry News In Brief

A number of local arts professionals are making the jump from Indianapolis to the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, which will unveil its Palladium concert hall in January.

Carol Baker has left the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, where she was director of education, for a similar job in Carmel, according to a recent announcement from the performing arts center. Before joining the ISO, Baker was director of volunteer and audience relations for the Actors Theatre of Louisville.

Lee Davis, who was event manager at Clowes Memorial Hall, is one of the Carmel center’s new front-of-house managers. At Clowes, she directed all front-of-house staff, including 250 volunteers, and was responsible for patron care, safety, service, contract security, concessions and catering.

Another new front-of-house manager is local actress Maria Eglan. She has worked in house management at The Shakespeare Theater of New Jersey. Currently, she’s playing Dorothy in a “Wizard of Oz” play at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.

Anne O’Brien left the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra to become the center’s sales and marketing manager. She’ll also oversee the center’s social media strategy.

The center’s new individual and corporate giving officer, Emily Lovison, comes from a different not-for-profit sector. She was development director at 100 Black Men of Indianapolis.

A former ISO marketing employee, Heather Mourer, joins the center as the donor relations officer.

Robert Oyler, who has worked at Lucas Oil Stadium, Hilbert Circle Theatre, Clowes Hall and Conseco Fieldhouse, is the center’s theatrical systems manager.

  1. By Mr. Lee's own admission, he basically ran pro-bono ads on the billboard. Paying advertisers didn't want ads on a controversial, ugly billboard that turned off customers. At least one of Mr. Lee's free advertisers dropped out early because they found that Mr. Lee's advertising was having negative impact. So Mr. Lee is disingenous to say the city now owes him for lost revenue. Mr. Lee quickly realized his monstrosity had a dim future and is trying to get the city to bail him out. And that's why the billboard came down so quickly.

  2. Merchants Square is back. The small strip center to the south of 116th is 100% leased, McAlister’s is doing well in the outlot building. The former O’Charleys is leased but is going through permitting with the State and the town of Carmel. Mac Grill is closing all of their Indy locations (not just Merchants) and this will allow for a new restaurant concept to backfill both of their locations. As for the north side of 116th a new dinner movie theater and brewery is under construction to fill most of the vacancy left by Hobby Lobby and Old Navy.

  3. Yes it does have an ethics commission which enforce the law which prohibits 12 specific items. google it

  4. Thanks for reading and replying. If you want to see the differentiation for research, speaking and consulting, check out the spreadsheet I linked to at the bottom of the post; it is broken out exactly that way. I can only include so much detail in a blog post before it becomes something other than a blog post.

  5. 1. There is no allegation of corruption, Marty, to imply otherwise if false. 2. Is the "State Rule" a law? I suspect not. 3. Is Mr. Woodruff obligated via an employment agreement (contractual obligation) to not work with the engineering firm? 4. In many states a right to earn a living will trump non-competes and other contractual obligations, does Mr. Woodruff's personal right to earn a living trump any contractual obligations that might or might not be out there. 5. Lawyers in state government routinely go work for law firms they were formally working with in their regulatory actions. You can see a steady stream to firms like B&D from state government. It would be interesting for IBJ to do a review of current lawyers and find out how their past decisions affected the law firms clients. Since there is a buffer between regulated company and the regulator working for a law firm technically is not in violation of ethics but you have to wonder if decisions were made in favor of certain firms and quid pro quo jobs resulted. Start with the DOI in this review. Very interesting.
