PROVIDENCE – Trinity Repertory Company’s board of trustees elected seven new members and reelected another five to the 42-member board at the nonprofit theater group’s annual meeting last month.

Also, Trinity was on track to end the fiscal year in the black, “a significant accomplishment for the nonprofit organization, which faced significant financial struggles only a few years ago,” the theater said in a news release. Although the fiscal year ended June 30, outstanding bills remain, and June donations are still being collected.

The seven new Trinity trustees, elected to three-year terms, are:

Judhajit De, Sergio M. Gonzalez, Sean Holley, James Hurley, Lawrence J. La Sala, Sara Shea McConnell and Julia Ann Slom.

Holley serves as a sports, entertainment and event management educator and entrepreneur. Hurley is senior vice president of investor relations at International Game Technology PLC. La Sala is Textron’s vice president and deputy general counsel, litigation. McConnell serves on multiple boards in the state of Rhode Island, including St. Andrew’s School and the Providence Board of Parks Commission. Slom leads Washington Trust’s commercial real estate group.

The five reelected trustees are: Jonathan Duffy, Brian McGuirk, Kibbe Reilly, Kathryn Sabatini and Arthur Solomon.

In addition, Marc Perlman was elected to the emeritus board.

Officers elected for the 2019-20 season were Vice Chairs Barbara Schoenfeld and Arthur P. Solomon, Treasurer John Lombardo and Secretary Jonathan Duffy. Chair Suzanne Magaziner continues in the final year of her three-year term.

“It is a credit to the great work that Trinity Rep does that we were able to attract this group of new trustees,” said Kibbe Reilly, chair of the governance committee. “They provide a wide range of expertise and a great deal of enthusiasm to be of service. I can’t wait to work alongside them.”

Trinity extended its thanks to board members whose terms expired in June: Brian Daniels, Mark Gim, Sally Herreid, Peter Lewiss, Chris Marsella, Russell Morin, Don Wineberg and Simon Wood.
