“David is smart, dynamic and strategic-minded, with not only a strong background in new media, but a firm belief in a one-on-one relationship with our patrons,” said Michael Ross, Playhouse managing director. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to have him on board.”

The Playhouse said Byrd’s responsibilities include the development of seasonal and individual production marketing initiatives; oversight of all communications, with emphasis on branding and social media using Web-based technologies; strategic efforts in audience development, including the organization of detailed audience research; in-depth budget management; and the management of both the marketing and patron services staff.
