SMPTE has appointed David Grindle to serve as the Society’s next Executive Director. He will formally join SMPTE in July after concluding a 12-year tenure as executive director of the United States Institute for Theatre Technology, an association dedicated to performing arts and entertainment professionals.

David Grindle‘David encompasses for SMPTE the leadership attributes we need to move the global organization into its second century with long-term, sustainable programmes,’ says SMPTE President, Hans Hoffmann. ‘He has broad experience in non-profit organisations and working with board structures like we have. I look forward to developing – together with the board and him and the home office staff – the strategies for the future growth of the Society.’

Grindle is a Certified Association Executive with a background in opera, theatre and academia. He has a strong record of success across fundraising, establishing fiscal diversity, and developing creative ideas for programmatic growth, and he has experience guiding a board, from operations to governance, while maintaining engagement with the organisation’s membership and connection with its volunteer spirit.

In addition to his experience in non-profit leadership, Grindle is a Fulbright specialist with the US State Department and an honorary member of the African Theatre Association. He has served on advisory boards for multiple convention bureaux, spoken at entertainment industry events around the world, and earned a Distinguished Achievement Award from the Berry College Alumni Association.

‘Building on the storied history of the Society and working with the members and staff, I am confident that we can position SMPTE for current and future service to a rapidly developing industry,’ Grindle says. ‘The opportunities to connect people in the global media community are boundless, and one of my goals as Executive Director is to help SMPTE become the bridge that connects people to this industry and the industry to its own future.

‘There is so much positive energy and momentum here already, and I look forward to meeting our members and hearing what they need and want so that we can work to continue delivering relevant and meaningful services for SMPTE members at all stages in their career path.’
