Farewell to Development Manager Kate Riley

June 23, 2022

Today we share the bittersweet news that after 4 years of service, Development Manager Kate Riley is leaving the Guild to pursue new opportunities. Among the many contributions she made to the organization during her tenure, she secured emergency COVID funding, renewed relationships with lapsed funders, learned to accept Salesforce (her words!), and harnessed the creativity of the field to sustain the Guild’s work during a time of tremendous disruption.

Kate is wearing a red shirt  in a room with white walls and a white dog pen behind her. She is holding Grover, a black and white puppy. She has frizzy light brown hair, and is smiling at the dog.

“Working alongside a team of fun, dedicated and creative spirits has been an extraordinary privilege and has shaped the way I move through the world. The Guild is a unique and vital part of the arts ecosystem that is poised to transform the field. I am better for having been a part of it.”

We thank Kate for her contributions to the Guild, we will miss her and Grover (the adorable Boston Terrier pictured above) on our Zoom screens, and we wish her the best on her next adventure!
