André Gremillet, Cleveland Orchestra President and CEO, began his tenure with the Orchestra as Executive Director in January 2016. From 2012 to 2015, he served as Managing Director of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO). During his time in Australia, the MSO greatly deepened its engagement with the Melbourne community, resulting in a significant increase in ticket sales and fundraising. The orchestra also made a highly successful European Tour that included debut performances at the BBC Proms in London, the Edinburgh Festival, and the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
From 2007 to 2012, André Gremillet was President and CEO of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra (NJSO), where his tenure was widely acknowledged as marking a turnaround for the organization. Under his leadership, the NJSO greatly improved its financial condition and increased its artistic reputation.
Prior to joining the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, Mr. Gremillet served for four years as President of the internationally renowned pipe organ building company Casavant Frères.
A native of Quebec, Canada, and a conservatory-trained pianist, André Gremillet holds a master’s degree from the Mannes College of Music and an MBA from McGill University.
