The State Theatre New Jersey announced it has appointed Anna Marie Gewirtz, its current chief of external affairs and senior vice president, to its new acting CEO and president.
Gewirtz has assumed the rule following the departure of Thomas J. Carto.
“Anna Marie is integral to our recent success in fundraising and marketing and we appreciate her ongoing leadership as she takes on this new role,” said Scott Fergang, chair of the State Theatre board of trustees.
Gewirtz joined the theater in 2013. She has worked in arts and nonprofit management, including most recently at the Liberty Science Center and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre.
