The Out of Bounds Comedy Festival is proud to announce that Ruby Willmann has been appointed as Interim Executive Producer by the festival’s board of directors. She will assume the reigns effective immediately from festival founder and previous Executive Producer, Jeremy Sweetlamb, who retired following the 2015 Out of Bounds. Willmann has worked for the festival for the past four years, most recently in the role of festival producer reporting directly to the Executive Producer. Her term as interim will run through the production of the 2016 Out of Bounds Festival, at which point Out of Bounds will announce an Artistic Director, pending a thorough job search and application process.
The board has also announced the creation of the position of Business Director, to assume the financial duties of maintaining and executing the financial responsibilities of the 501c3 not-for-profit festival. Applications for the Business Director position are open effective immediately. Inquiries and resumes should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
“The move toward splitting the Executive Producer position into an Artistic Director and Business Director makes a lot of sense for a festival of our size and longevity,” said Shannon McCormick, board president and former Co-Executive Producer. “Having Ruby step into this interim role ensures both continuity and that institutional expertise will be maintained during this transitional year. She’s fantastically thorough and dependable, and will create the right environment for us to create a new working model for our staff.”
Postings for the Artistic Director position will be forthcoming in 2016.
The Out of Bounds Business Director will handle the finances of the 7-day non-profit comedy festival; manage grant applications and reporting; work to develop fund raising efforts in conjunction with the board of directors; handle taxes; and manage the festival’s monetary transactions.
