As vice president of patron loyalty, Robinson will institute data-driven marketing initiatives, highlight the artistic vision of Music Director José Luis Gomez, and work with staff and board to focus on customers. Robinson earned a master of business administration degree from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and a doctor of musical arts degree from the University of Arizona, and worked in the fields of energy, food, travel, and education before his eight-year tenure as director of marketing for the Houston Symphony. Most recently, Robinson was the marketing director for the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra in Doha, Qatar, where he spent eight years.
As vice president of development, Glenn Paris will oversee major gifts and individual giving, corporate sponsorships, foundation and government grants, and lead the development team, with a particular focus on fostering support for the orchestra’s education programs. Paris has led development efforts for organizations including La Jolla Playhouse, New York City Mission Society, and HB Playwrights Foundation. Paris holds a master of fine arts in directing from Carnegie Mellon University.
