Our New Executive Director
Quincy McCoy 
Dear Community, 

The Board of Directors of the Ruth Williams Memorial Theater is pleased to announce Quincy McCoy as our new Executive Director. Quincy is taking the helm at an opportune time after a bright summer full of vital programming and community engagement. 

The next chapter of the Ruth Williams Memorial Theater will be about building from our strengths, prioritizing Black voices and audiences, and re-imagining our impact in San Francisco. Quincy is excited to dig into the work and will start on Monday, August 22, 2022.

Quincy has had an expansive career in a myriad of industry-leading roles with management experience in both the corporate and non-profit sectors. He is joining us from KPFA, 94.1 FM in Berkeley, where he served as General Manager. He is the former Executive Director of the Children's Museum of Oakland, MOCHA and former VP of Music Programming for online services Rhapsody America and MTV Networks. He's a dynamic leader with a commitment to creativity, the arts, and civic engagement. 

I was happy to serve as Acting Executive Director during this transition and want to thank my fellow Board Members for their support and the amazing staff of the Ruth Williams Memorial Theater for their team spirit, hard work and professionalism. Additionally, thank you to the Williams Family for your guidance every step of the way. 

We look forward to the next chapter of the Ruth Williams Memorial Theater's impact and thank you for your continued support. 

Better Together, 

Dee Hillman 
Board President
