Spirit Of Atlanta Appoints New Executive Director

| |

Spirit of Atlanta announces the hire of Jeff Nelson as Executive Director of the drum corps, effective immediately. Nelson has stepped down from his current role as Board President to accept the position and to focus his efforts on the day to day operations and management of the drum corps. He will remain on as an ex-officio member of the board.

Nelson has served as President of the Board since 2015, stepping in at a time when the corps found itself in deep debt and with an uncertain future. He has been pivotal in restructuring the board and corps operations, leading to a strong recovery from a difficult financial position in a relatively short period, while resetting the corps for growth and an optimistic future. Nelson has longstanding ties with the organization as both he and his wife are alumni of the corps, Jeff having played snare from 79-81 and wife Judy as a color guard member from 78-81. Nelson was also a member of the Concord Blue Devils as section leader of the drumline in 1982 and member of the staff in 1983.
