Big News At RPM
Posted by rpm
RPM is excited to announce a transition in staff leadership. Jessica George –– who has been running addRPM, our signature artist philanthropy program — has been named Executive Director effective January 1.
Both Erin Potts and Deyden Tethong are segueing from their staff positions. For over ten years, they have worked to establish and serve our fine network of artists and managers. It is with an enduring commitment to the organization’s mission that they will remain deeply involved with RPM. Erin has been named to RPM’s board of directors and Deyden to RPM’s advisory board.
Jess is the next generation of leader that we have been hoping would take RPM into its next decade of work, and we are thrilled to welcome and support her in her new role. Jess is a fierce organizer and passionate advocate. With ten years of experience in fundraising and organizing, she is able to support the development, management and implementation of campaigns with artists and their teams. In her role at RPM, Jess has accelerated our ticket add-on program, working with artists on tour to raise awareness and much-needed funds for important social and environmental justice causes.
Since our launch, RPM has supported artists and their teams to make an impact on the issues that they care about by using innovative philanthropic strategies, artist-focused workshops, DIY tools and resources for artist activism and individual advising. As a result, we have raised over $2 million for important social change work.
From ticket add-ons to social media partnerships, RPM will continue to provide customized charitable campaign advising in support of some of the most effective nonprofits working today.
