    DSO taps VP Erik Rönmark as next president, CEO

    The Detroit Symphony Orchestra has tapped Erik Rönmark, its vice president and general manager, as its next president and chief executive officer, officials announced Wednesday evening.

    Rönmark, 44, will succeed Anne Parsons, the DSO’s president since 2004 who steered the orchestra through a series of challenges, including financial woes, a divisive musicians’ strike and the pandemic. 

    Rönmark, who was born and raised in Sweden and is a professional saxophonist, has been with the DSO for 16 years in various roles, working his way up to vice president for the last six years and general manager for eight.

    “I’m thrilled with the choice that the board made,” said Parsons before the DSO’s annual meeting Wednesday where Rönmark’s appointment was announced. “They did their due dilligence and had a really healthy process. And the right person came out on top. That would’ve been my choice. He is my choice. He is passionate and smart and a strategic leader.”
