TORONTO (CelebrityAccess) — On Tuesday, the Corporation of Massey Hall & Roy Thomson Hall Board of Governors announced that Thomas C. MacMillan has been appointed as interim President & Chief Executive Officer.
“The Board is grateful that our former Board Chair, Tom MacMillan, has agreed to serve as Interim CEO for the Corporation,” said Eileen Costello, Board Chair of The Corporation of Massey Hall Roy Thomson Hall. “As the current Co-Chair of our Massey Hall Forever Campaign Tom is already fully engaged in our Massey Hall project. Tom brings to the position not only long-standing commitment to Massey and Roy Thomson Hall but also his considerable business experience and, of course, his love of music and the Halls. We are confident that Tom will provide the Corporation with leadership and stability as we commence the search for the new President and CEO.”
Mr. MacMillan comes to the role from the financial services world but is no stranger to the organization. MacMillan served for almost a decade on the organization’s Board of Governors from 2000 to 2009, including a three-year stint as Board Chair, from 2006 to 2008.
MacMillan fills the leadership role at the iconic Toronto venues that was left empty by the sudden passing of former President & CEO Deane Cameron, C.M. in May.
“I am extremely honoured for this opportunity to be working with such an incredible team here at Massey Hall & Roy Thomson Hall,” said MacMillan in a press statement. “I will endeavour to build on Deane’s legacy and help to bring a successful conclusion to the Massey Hall Revitalization project which was very close to his heart.”
