Interviews: Paul Beutel, Managing Director of the Long Center

Paul Beutel, managing director of the Long Center since mid-2008, recently told Rob Faubion of,

"Like any new organization, The Long Center has faced the challenges of achieving operating efficiencies. The challenge has been compounded, of course, by the current economic climate. As we have learned more about what it takes to operate the Center on a daily basis, we have confronted the economic challenges and managed to trim our operating budget by an amazing 20%. "The budget trimming did involve the elimination of eight staff positions and job re-ordering. Client and audience services, however, have not been compromised."
