Scott Altman

President & CEO

Scott Altman joined Cincinnati Ballet as President & CEO in September 2016. Un­der his visionary leader­ship, the Cincinnati Ballet reached its first $10 million operating budget, rolled out a dynamic new logo and brand identity, experienced record-breaking ticket sales, launched the new Family Series, ex­panded education and outreach programs, and offered audiences more performances than ever before. Altman brings with him nearly three de­cades of experience in nonprofit administration and performing arts. Prior to his roles in admin­istration, Altman enjoyed a 20-year career as a professional opera singer and performed 40 opera roles internationally. He has held leadership posi­tions at Arizona Opera and Opera New Jersey, and just prior to coming to Cincinnati Ballet he was Ex­ecutive Director of Ballet West. During his tenure, Ballet West experienced phenomenal expansion, including growth in ticket sales, a vastly expanded touring schedule, robust growth in donor develop­ment, and the construction of a new building. He is an alumnus of the Manhattan School of Music and the State University College at Purchase. Altman attended Stanford University’s Executive Program for Nonprofit Leaders, was a Utah Business 2016 CEO of the Year Honoree, and is a three-time re­cipient of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts Citation of Excellence Award.
