Joe Kobryner and Vanessa Y. Davis

Joe Kobryner, head of Broadway San Diego for the past 22 years, will retire in July from the organization that brings traveling Broadway shows to San Diego.

Kobryner, who is a vice president in Broadway San Diego’s New York-based parent, the Nederlander Organization, will serve through July 13.

Vanessa Y. Davis will become general manager of Broadway San Diego, taking over many of Kobryner’s duties.

“I have worked with Vanessa for over 20 years, and am thrilled that she will succeed me in overseeing the important San Diego market. Over the years, she has demonstrated a tremendous ability to learn and excel at everything in which she is involved,” Kobryner said.

Davis currently oversees Broadway San Diego’s president’s club, group sales and patron services. She has served on the board of Executive Women International, recently as president of the San Diego chapter.

“It will be a privilege to serve as general manager in our vibrant San Diego Arts community, and I look forward to leading the incredibly talented team at Broadway San Diego into the next chapter,” Davis said.
