We’re excited to announce that Kanchan Mattoo will succeed Festival Director Ben Hill as Chairman of the Board. Kan and Ben are both co-founders of the festival and Kan has served for many years on the board. He served as the Fringe Development Director for many years before retiring from staff.
From Ben: “Kan has been with the organization since its inception and has always been a driver for positive change. I am thrilled to work with him in his new capacity as he continues to develop a board worthy of our mission.”
In his new position, Kan plans to focus on marketing, fundraising and other opportunities contributing to long-term stability. “Now that Hollywood Fringe has become a staple in the cultural arts of Los Angles,” he said, “my long-term vision is to develop a strong basis of funding to sustain the festival for years to come.”
