Onboarding & Activation

Sweibel Arts’ investment in the next generation of arts leaders doesn’t stop with its executive placement practice. There is work to be done inside our institutions to position these incoming professionals for success.

Our bespoke onboarding and coaching practice speaks directly to the complexity of contemporary marketing. Putting behinds in seats is just one tack on a course of consumer and community engagement. We provide new leaders and their employers with the strategic frameworks to set priorities, align expectations, allocate resources, and innovate.

Most recently, we’ve stewarded senior marketers at American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, Boston’s ArtsEmerson, and Writers Theatre outside of Chicago. Our one-on-one client-company collaborations strengthen new leaders by calibrating their focus on both the big picture and the small details.

“Robert’s an ace. The Buffalo Philharmonic contracted with his firm to lead the executive search for a new senior marketing officer and to provide interim leadership while the search was underway. Robert’s search was among the smartest and most robust I’ve seen in the business and his interim leadership produced new ideas and new sales. All on time and all on budget. So impressive, we continue to work with his firm.”
