NAPLES — Gulfshore Playhouse hired three new executives to its team to help with a capital campaign to build a new theatre and education center in Naples.
The new hires come after the Naples theater recently reached its $20 million fundraising goal, established to construct the new center at Goodlette-Frank Road and First Avenue South, according to a news release.
Kimberly Dye was named chief advancement officer for Gulfshore Playhouse. In her role, she will be heading up the organization’s development and marketing teams and overseeing the successful completion of the capital campaign to raise funds for the new facility.
Dana Boll was named capital campaign and events director. Boll will oversee the implementation of the capital campaign as well as lead planning efforts for the organization’s fundraising events, including the inaugural Rising Stars luncheon benefiting Gulfshore Playhouse Education, and the annual Gala.
Kent Kyle took on the role of director of corporate and foundation relations. In his role at Gulfshore Playhouse, he will support the expansion of corporate gifts, annual giving and major gifts for the capital campaign.
“These new hires demonstrate the rapid growth at Gulfshore Playhouse, including an operational budget that has doubled in less than five years to more than $4 million,” says Kristen Coury, founder and producing artistic director of Gulfshore Playhouse, in the release. “By bringing their years of experience to our development team, Kimberly, Dana and Kent will be instrumental in taking our transformative plans from conception to completion, while supporting our robust professional theater and education programming.”
