Jed Dodds, The Studios of Key West’s Executive Director since 2012, has been selected for the prestigious Leadership Florida program as a member of its 41st Cornerstone Class. Dodds will be among fifty-five Florida leaders aged 40 and over, including corporate CEOs, business owners, educators, elected officials and non-profit executives, participating in a nine-month, multi-city educational program exploring critical issues facing the State of Florida.
“Our mission at Leadership Florida is to bring together committed leaders from all over the state to recharge their leadership skills and expand their network,” said Wendy Spencer, president and CEO of Leadership Florida. “Through this powerful community, our class participants are able to find the knowledge and inspiration to take on some of Florida’s biggest challenges.”
In his time at The Studios, Dodds has spearheaded the development of its downtown campus, anchored by their iconic flagship building at the corner of Eaton and Simonton. Busy with exhibitions, concerts, plays, classes, a bookstore and rooftop terrace, The Studios is at the center of the island’s cultural life. Just next door, the arts organization is currently completing a $2.5M renovation of the PEAR House, which welcomes artists in residence from around the world to create new work in Key West.
