STAMFORD, Conn. - The Palace Theatre in Stamford has hired a new director of development, longtime Stamford resident Cathy Bromberg.
Bromberg comes to The Palace from the Norwalk Community College Foundation, where she designed and executed donor-centric special events, grew annual fund revenue by more than 25 percent, developed stewardship plans to retain major capital campaign donors, and created a successful scholarship marketing plan that increased the number of applicants by 35 percent.
“Cathy’s remarkable success in both annual fundraising and capital campaign drives brings the kind of expertise required to increase the breadth of our world-class productions and expand our educational offerings,” said the Palace’s Producing Artistic Director BT McNicholl. “We have an exciting array of new initiatives that will need community support, including growing our membership rewards program, celebrating the theatre’s outreach efforts, recognizing our generous donors, and continuing to bring beloved artists like Jerry Seinfeld to The Palace.”
“I am delighted to join Stamford’s Palace Theatre at this exciting time in its history, and to have the opportunity to work with a wonderful staff, dedicated cadre of volunteers and outstanding Board of Directors. I look forward to helping this team reach and exceed our worthy goals and realize our vision, all for the benefit of arts-loving residents and their children in our community.”
An avid New York Giants fan, Bromberg enjoys spending time with her husband and four children. She also volunteers with her church and leads a weekly women’s bible study.
The Palace Theatre has been a vital force in developing the arts, cultural entertainment and education for Stamford since it was built in 1927.
