Gary Hanson Named Interim President of the Cleveland Institute of Music

December 11, 2015

The Cleveland Institute of Music announces that Gary Hanson, retiring executive director of The Cleveland Orchestra, has been named Interim President of CIM. Mr. Hanson was appointed at a special meeting of the CIM Board of Trustees, on Friday, December 11 and will begin his term January 1, 2016.  In October, CIM’s current president, Joel Smirnoff, announced his retirement from administrative duties at CIM, effective December 31, 2015.

Mr. Hanson will complete his term as Executive Director of The Cleveland Orchestra (TCO) on December 31, 2015, a position he has held for more than 11 of the 28 years he served with the orchestra.  Under his leadership, TCO built its annual residency in Miami, added both opera and ballet to the season in Cleveland and ushered in the nation’s youngest audience for a symphony orchestra. Mr. Hanson is a trained double bass player, having studied music in Canada and Europe.

“On behalf of the Board, I am pleased to welcome Mr. Hanson to the Cleveland Institute of Music. His superior administrative skills are evident in the extraordinary growth experienced by The Cleveland Orchestra, in its audience, global presence and community engagement. The Board and I are excited to work with Mr. Hanson as we continue our search for a permanent CIM president,” said Richard J. Hipple, Chair of the CIM Board of Trustees.

“Over the course of my time at The Cleveland Orchestra I have experienced the outstanding talent of Cleveland Institute of Music students and the dedication of their faculty.  I am inspired by CIM’s mission and look forward to the opportunity to serve the institution during this important time of leadership transition,” said Mr. Hanson.

In November 2015, the Cleveland Institute of Music established a Presidential Search Committee comprised of CIM faculty, staff, alumni and members of the Board of Trustees. The Committee expects to formally launch the search in January 2016.
