GREEN BAY, WI – On Broadway, Inc. has announced the hiring of Allie Thut as their new Director of Special Events.
On Broadway faced staff reductions in 2020 due to the cancellation of events whose income supports the operation of the organization. A successful early start to a crowdfunding campaign has enabled the organization to hire Thut to begin coordinating events for 2021, as safety protocols permit.
In her role, Thut will be responsible for coordinating well-known community events including the Farmers’ Market on Broadway, Fire over the Fox, igNight Market, Taste on Broadway, and more. On Broadway is responsible for planning and executing nearly 60 events in downtown Green Bay’s Broadway District. Thut will also assist with business support programs and other initiatives to help promote the overall health and design of the district.
Thut recently moved back to Green Bay from Rochester, NY where she spent the last three years as an event coordinator for Rochester Events. In her role there, she helped coordinate the country’s largest 10-day music festival and 20 other events that attracted over 750,000 attendees. She also served as the event director for several races throughout the region.“I am very excited to be a part of the team at On Broadway, Inc.,” said Allie Thut. “Green Bay is my home, my roots, and I have fond memories attending On Broadway Events. I look forward to producing special events for the community that enhances the Broadway District experience.”
“We are thrilled to have found someone with Allie’s years of experience coordinating events that mirror what we offer in the Broadway District,” said Brian Johnson, executive director, On Broadway, Inc. “Allie will bring a fresh perspective from outside of the area and combine it with her knowledge and love for the community where she was raised. In many ways, it’s the perfect homecoming.”
