Tammy Rocker, formerly vice president of development for The Phoenix Symphony, has been promoted to chief development officer. Rocker joined the Symphony in 2017 after being the chief development officer of Circle the City. Prior to that, she served for more than a decade with the American Heart Association, where she ran the Western States region as senior vice president and executive director. She has had the experience of leading multi-million-dollar development programs as well as running a nonprofit as an executive director.
“Her leadership over the past year as vice president of development elevated the entire department to new levels of excellence,” says Jim Ward, Phoenix Symphony president and CEO. “I am confident her hard work and leadership will continue to fuel our overall mission of feeding the soul of this community with quality music, bolstering the cultural economy for continued growth and helping to educate the next generation of a creative workforce.”
