Interesting posts about the AD/CEO issue. From my experience in regional theater, opera and ballet, the companies whose AD/CEO work in very distinctly separate areas of the company do the best. SF Ballet and SF opera both work in the AD handles artistic issues, CEO handles business issues mode and both companies are running very successfully right now. There are of course places where both leaders are needed ie board meetings and fundraisers, but as long as they don't try to do more than their backgroungs allow, there aren't problems.
