RCA Welcomes Mr. Luis Puron, Our New Executive Director

It is with immense pleasure that I am able to introduce to all of you our newly hired Executive Director, Mr. Luis Purón. Your Executive Director Search Committee and the Board of Directors have unanimously endorsed the hiring of Luis. As a seasoned veteran Luis comes to us with a very strong and unique background that will enable him to shoulder his leadership role with us here at Rockport Center for the Arts.

Luis comes to us with greater than ten years of hands-on experience in operations, administration, management and finances in a high growth sector. In addition, Luis has four years of recent experience assisting an arts non-profit to navigate a strategic planning process resulting in physical space growth, expansion of core programs, increasing in funding, improvements in community relationships and the development of partnerships, as well as fundraising. But enough for now...there is much more to share and ample time to take in all of Luis’s capabilities.

Please join me in welcoming our new Executive Director into our art community. I know that each and every one of you will become as excited as we are in anticipating Luis’s leadership involvement as we move into the next chapter of RCA’s future.


Mitch L. Wess
President, Board of Directors
