Thea Foundation Announces New Executive Director
Nick Leopoulos, former Assistant Director of Thea Foundation, has been appointed by the Thea Foundation's Board of Directors to take the lead as the foundation's new Executive Director beginning July 1.
"I am deeply humbled by the opportunity to step into this role and continue the incredible work that Thea has been doing for the past eighteen years," Nick said. "I am also excited about what the future holds for Thea and am honored to work alongside such brilliant and dedicated individuals that make up this dynamic organization."
After returning to Central Arkansas from the east coast, Nick Leopoulos worked in an administrative capacity at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre while freelancing with several area arts organizations, generating new ideas for programing and crafting visual identities. Nick holds a BFA in Photography and an MA in Arts Administration from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Nick has served as the Assistant Director of the Thea Foundation since 2011.
Nick is preceded by his father, Paul Leopoulos, who served as the foundation's Executive Director since 2001 when he co-founded the arts-based nonprofit with his wife, Linda Leopoulos.
