Connector Breakfast with Doug Shipman

Originally Aired Wednesday, July 10, 2019

We were joined by Doug Shipman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Woodruff Arts Center, home to the Alliance Theatre, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the High Museum of Art.

Mr. Shipman became the Arts Center CEO in July 2017, after serving as Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of BrightHouse, a stand-alone business unit of the Boston Consulting Group since 2015. BrightHouse is a purpose-driven consulting firm that helps its clients define their true purpose to accelerate their transformation and value creation.

Prior to that role, Mr. Shipman was the founding Chief Executive Officer of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta from 2007 through 2015. Starting from the ground up, he developed the Center’s business strategy, its fundraising strategy and its public engagement plan that led the $100 million museum to become a reality.
