Thanking Deb Twersky

Since announcing our longtime Executive Director Jim Kelly’s retirement in December 2017, our Board, Advisory Committees, and staff have been hard at work filling this essential role. It’s a daunting task, especially as we’ve contended with other big changes and new initiatives this year. 2018 has not been boring! As we get closer to selecting and announcing our new Executive Director, we’re taking a moment to put a spotlight on the person largely responsible for holding it all together: Deb Twersky.

While the network of people helping 4Culture navigate this challenging and exciting time has been vast, Deb has truly been at its center. As the manager of all our funding programs, Deb tirelessly tracked and interpreted the evolution of King County Ordinance #2018-0086, helping our community understand its impacts. She stepped into the role of Acting Director in April after Jim’s retirement, guiding us through the process of evaluating applications and interviewing candidates—all while overseeing the day-to-day tasks of running 4Culture.

4Culture staff, Board, and Advisory Committees thank Deb for her incredible leadership. Stay tuned for more information on our new Executive Director, coming soon!
