Leader in Arts and Entertainment: Kevin Giglinto (Romania)

In the news —

Kevin Giglinto (Romania 1994-96) joined the Marcus Performing Arts Center in Milwaukee  in July 2023 as its new president and chief executive officer, with more than 25 years of experience.

Over the past nine months, Giglinto’s initiatives have led to a 32% increase in venue attendance, the launch of a new series, and an investment in tools to broaden MPAC’s digital reach, according to Lori Craig, senior vice president, market leader for PNC Private Bank and chair of the Marcus Center board.

“He was instrumental in creating MPAC’s latest performance lineup, the Culture Collective, designed to celebrate and elevate the contributions of artists of color across a spectrum of artistic disciplines. This new series aligns with MPAC’s commitment to racial equity, diversity and inclusion,” Craig said.

Giglinto also launched a new internship program at the Marcus Center, providing young people a chance to explore a career in the arts.

He is a member of the Milwaukee Rotary Club and the Greater Milwaukee Committee. Giglinto also served as a business development volunteer for the U.S. Peace Corps in Romania.

    My hero John Kennedy had a great commitment to the arts as a vibrant part of a great civilization.
