SCFTA Names Casey Reitz as New President

Leader of Second Stage Theater in New York City to join Orange County’s Premier Performing Arts Center

Segerstrom Center for the Arts Board Chairman Mark C. Perry announced that Casey Reitz will become the Center’s new President. The presidential search committee, led by long-time Center board members, Lawrence Higby and Shanaz Langson, made a unanimous recommendation after a six-month search conducted by the global executive search firm, Korn Ferry. Since 2010, Reitz has served as Executive Director of Second Stage Theater in New York City, winning a Tony Award as Best Musical Producer of Dear Evan Hansen in 2017. Reitz will assume his new role in December 2019.
Perry stated, “We are extremely pleased that Casey is joining the Center in this critical role as President. His impressive experience in leading significant arts initiatives includes successful multi-million-dollar capital campaigns, developing exciting new artistic works, and embracing community outreach. Casey’s style of collaboration and enthusiasm will serve him tremendously well as he works closely with our resident arts partners, devoted patrons and greater Orange County community. We look forward to welcoming Casey to our Center family.”
