Disney Family Museum taps Calicchio

Legit exec named CEO

Legit exec Gabriella Calicchio has been named CEO of the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco. She’ll take the helm in November.

Calicchio spent the past four years as managing director of the Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis. She was previously managing director of Marin Theater Company in Mill Valley, Calif., for six years.

The exec “brings extensive experience across disciplines in the non-profit arts,” said Walter E.D. Miller, museum co-founder and grandson of Walt Disney. “She is highly regarded in the field and has amassed an enviable record of administrative and artistic successes.”

Calicchio succeeds the museum’s founding exec director, Richard Benefield. The museum opened in a 40,000-square-foot facility in the San Francisco Presidio in October 2009.
