Deborah Jordy, a longtime Denver arts and culture executive who once ran the Arvada Center for the Performing Arts, has been named the next executive director of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD).

Jordy follows Peg Long, who is retiring at the end of the year after more than nine years as executive director.

Jordy currently is the executive director of the nonprofit Colorado Business Committee for the Arts (CBCA), a post she has held since 2004.

“Deborah’s considerable experience with arts and cultural organizations coupled with her significant managerial skills make her the ideal choice to lead SCFD. Voters overwhelmingly renewed SCFD for another 12 years [in the fall election that ended Nov. 8], and Jordy’s leadership will assure their trust in the district is well placed,” said SCFD Board Chairman Dan Hopkins. “As we look to further expand access and inclusiveness, Deborah has the relationships and knowledge to make these goals the new reality.”
