Rothman leaving The Center after a year

JACKSON, Wyo. — David Rothman announced his resignation as CEO and president of Center for the Arts.

Rothman made the decision to relocate full time to Crested Butte, Colorado where his family is located. The Center board named Marty Camino, previously in the role of event services director, as acting director.

“My family must come first. I need to be [with them], so it is with a heavy heart that I will be resigning from my position,” Rothman said in a prepared statement. “The Center is a wonderful institution, the staff is committed and skilled, and I wish them all good luck in a challenging time for arts institutions everywhere.”

Rothman was appointed president and chief executive officer of the organization on January 7, 2019. According to the board, Rothman impacted the vibrancy of The Center’s programs and campus, improved the quality of resident partnerships, and contributed to the overall success and creative growth of the institution.

“On behalf of the board, I would like to thank David Rothman for his dedicated service and contributions to The Center, and we are thinking of him and his family during this difficult time,” said board chair Valerie Brown. “We have every confidence in Marty Camino’s ability, with support from our entire dedicated staff, to take the helm and navigate through these uncharted waters ahead of us all.”

The Center will evaluate a leadership search at a later date as current events surrounding COVID-19 unfold.
