PAWTUCKET – After nine years with the company, Yvonne Seggerman has submitted her resignation as executive director of the Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre, effective Jan. 1, 2013.

Seggerman, who has been on sabbatical since July 1, served as managing director from 2003 to 2008 and executive director from 2009 to 2012.

“I have loved every minute of my nine and a half years at the Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre and feel honored and blessed to have worked with the hands-down best board of directors and Rhode Island's most talented artists and staff,” said Seggerman in a statement.

Under Seggerman’s leadership, The Gamm grew from two full-time employees to more than 60, and the annual budget increased from $200,000 to more than $1.2 million.

“I love leaving a place in better condition than it was when I found it!” said Seggerman, adding that “At the moment though, I need to be able to devote more time to my family.”

Former board president David M. Wax has been acting as executive director since Seggerman started her sabbatical in July and will continue in that position while the board searchers for a replacement.

“It seems that as The Gamm approaches its next five-year strategic plan, new leadership might be a really great thing: a fresh perspective, and someone with the ability to put in the extra hours and single-minded energy required for the next steps,” said Seggerman.
