Demetrius Fuller Named CEO of Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation
The Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation announced Demetrius Fuller as its new CEO. Fuller will replace Marcia Hull, who has served as MKAF CEO for the past 22 years. After years of devoted service, Marcia is retiring on Dec. 31, 2020.
Fuller, who will continue to serve as the Music & Artistic Director of Sinfonia Gulf Coast, will lead at the helm of an arts and culture partnership between the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation and Sinfonia Gulf Coast. While both organizations will remain intact and separately governed, the new endeavor is the vision of both the MKAF and Sinfonia boards of directors. Capital campaign endeavors have commenced and are being led by Atlanta-based Tomlinson-Graham Group. The name of the parent organization, of which Demetrius will ultimately be Chief Executive & Artistic Officer, along with the vision and plans for the transformation of the MKAF property in Destin into a cultural and educational hub, will be announced in early 2021.
