Deborah Ann Trimble has been named the new director of development at the La Jolla Playhouse, effective Sept. 7, Artistic Director Christopher Ashley and Managing Director Michael S. Rosenberg said last week.
For the last five years, Trimble served as development director at Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota, Fla., where she increased the company’s public and private support by more than $1 million and initiated several notable development and planned giving projects. Prior to that she was executive director of the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy.
“We are delighted to welcome Deborah Ann Trimble to the La Jolla Playhouse family,” said Rosenberg. “Debbie’s extensive experience creating corporate and community partnerships, launching endowment and capital campaigns, as well as her stellar fundraising track record, make her the ideal candidate to lead the Playhouse’s development team.”
