From a Santa Clara Vanguard press release:
As the final step of a year-long restructuring effort, Santa Clara Vanguard has appointed Jeff Fiedler as its first chief executive officer. Fiedler comes to the Vanguard after recently retiring from the Cavaliers at the end of the 2007 drum crops season after 17 years as director. He is a 2005 inductee of the Drum Corps International Hall of Fame. Santa Clara Vanguard board chairman Marc Hebert made the announcement at the conclusion of the organization's April rehearsal camp this past weekend. According to the Vanguard release, Fiedler's appointment is the final piece of an organizational restructuring that began last summer as a complete review of Vanguard's governance model, bylaws, board makeup, financial plan and management team. In his role he will report to the Vanguard board of directors, and direct an organization led by Jeff Pearson, program manager; Kathy Serksnis, chief opperating officer; and Sandra Adams, bingo manager.
