When you're running a not-for-profit enterprise in the arts, it's always nice to have an economist in the family. Congratulations!

Not arguing, bart, but I think Kaiser already has an MBA himself.  Best wishes to the happy couple!

Yes, as to Kaiser. But, I don't know, "economist" sounds so much more exotic (or something) than MBA.

Economist is decidedly different from MBA....though I am sure that Kaiser knows plenty about the economics of the arts...

 

Best wishes to Kaiser and Roberts.

Is he related to the Pennsylvania artistic director named Kaiser?

The dancing Kaisers are more than the PB AD: Kevin was a Soloist at PNB for years and another, Russell, was at NYCB and married Margaret Tracey. (I never knew they were a Seattle area family until reading this.). And, from this I learned that they used to sing together as the "Kaiser Brothers."

I think you have to be a redhead to join that club ;). Seriously, I suspect a family tie would have been mentioned when PB performed at the Kennedy Center.

Edited to add: there are five Kaiser brothers, all of whom had careers in ballet, including Dan and Ken.

I don't think "Seattle Business Journal" would have missed a family business connection with Michael Kaiser.
