Grandbois succeeds Leigh Esper, who announced her plans to leave the organization in December after three and a half years at the post.
Grandbois will be responsible for financial and personnel management and media and public relations, as well as strategic planning and development for the local arts organization.
“We have an excellent staff and organization and I am confident that Peggy will continue the implementation of our strategic plan which includes placing an emphasis on our strengths of arts education and community events. She is the right person to lead our organization. We are excited to continue this positive momentum and provide the community with all the benefits expected from The Arts Partnership,” said Steve Bihn, president of the board of directors for The Arts Partnership.
Grandbois has served as The Arts Partnership’s education director since August 2005 in addition to serving as assistant director for the past three years.
A graduate of Bowling Green State University and Boston University, Grandbois is also a graduate of the Hancock Leadership Class of 2012 and currently serves on the board of Hancock Youth Leadership.
