Delia Vayansky, a member of Princeton University's Richardson Auditorium staff since 2004, has been named director of the facility.
Vayansky, who has more than 15 years of arts administration experience, had served as acting director of Richardson since October. Before that, she was associate director of the auditorium.
In her new role, she will be responsible for the administration, planning, scheduling, marketing and promotion as well as the provision of facilities, technical and other support for events in Richardson, which is located in Alexander Hall on the campus. The 885-seat facility is a fully-equipped performing arts venue that also hosts many official University ceremonies and functions including, for example, in recent months, a concert by the Princeton University Orchestra, a lecture by United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the University's annual Martin Luther King Day celebration.
"Delia is a highly skilled arts administrator who is client centered and valued by our campus community," said Paul Breitman, general manager of University Services, to whom Vayansky reports.
From 1990 to 2004, Vayansky was assistant production manager at McCarter Theatre in Princeton. She is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, and recently completed the Management Development Certificate Program offered through Princeton's Office of Human Resources.
Vayansky succeeds Jennifer Sorgatz, who took a position with the National Geo-Spatial Intelligence Agency in Washington, D.C.
