Ami Brophy Out as ADC CEO

By Kiran Aditham 

The Art Directors Club is shaking things up this week, as the creative org announced that it’s eliminated the full-time CEO position and in turn, accepted Ami Brophy’s resignation. Brophy was promoted from executive director to the chief exec post just over a year ago.

With the CEO position gone, the ADC Board of Directors voted to make management of all ADC programming and member services the responsibility of an executive director, yet to be named. In the meantime, ADC GM Olga Grisaitis will serve as acting director and oversee operations until the post is filled.

In a statement, ADC president Doug Jaeger says, “We are very grateful for Ami’s contributions over the past two years, and wish her well moving forward.”
