Crawford to step down in June

Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts chairman Bruce Crawford will step down in June, the org formally announced Thursday. A nominating committee headed by Lincoln Center vice chair Frank Bennack will recommend a successor in the coming months.

As chairman since June 2002, Crawford oversaw 12 resident organizations, including the Metropolitan Opera, the New York City Opera, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Lincoln Center Theater and the Juilliard School. The position is unpaid.

Announcement comes amid a fund-raising campaign for the org’s major redevelopment plan, which includes a $475 million overhaul of the campus’ 65th Street corridor. Org recently opened its new Jazz at Lincoln Center complex inside the Time Warner Center.

Crawford, 75, is also the chairman of the Omnicom Group, the marketing and communications giant. He will retain that position, which he has kept during his tenure at Lincoln Center.
