The MSO board has recently appointed Ron Lattin as its new Executive Director, following months of careful planning. Since joining on April 1, Ron has been working closely with Jon Lewis, MSO’s long-time leader, to ensure a smooth transition. Jon is retiring later this year after a distinguished career as the MSO Executive Director, and will continue playing as Principal Percussionist after taking a well-deserved break. With Jon’s leadership, the MSO has grown and greatly increased its impact on the community.
Ron comes to the MSO after a 25 year career in nonprofits serving in many development and leadership roles including executive director of Rural Health Care Initiative and the MN Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Ron is a committed volunteer and contributes his time to several community initiatives, including serving as Board President of Youth Performance Company and on the boards of Beyond Walls and EquaSpace. He is also a devoted volunteer driver for the nonprofit Daily Work.
The MSO is excited to welcome Ron and looks forward to his valuable contributions as the organization continues to grow and evolve.
