JA HALL OF FAME GALA 2018 HONOREE: JUDY MITCHELL

At the helm of the $138 million Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, Judith Mitchell is no ordinary Chief Executive Officer. Her commitment to and passion for fulfilling the Center’s mission of enhancing the quality of life in Palm Beach County is exemplified in her hands-on approach to leadership—and in the more than 13,000 performances presented, 10 million guests and over 2 million students who have participated in the Center’s educational programs over the last 25                                                                                 years.

Even before becoming CEO in 1992, as the Center’s Director of Development, Judith was a driving force with the Center’s Board of Directors in the fundraising efforts that led to the Center opening its doors fully funded. Since then, she’s been involved in every aspect of the Center’s operations—from overseeing 200 employees and 500 volunteers, and managing an annual operating budget of $27 million, to guiding programming, fundraising and administration and spearheading the initiative to create Kravis On Broadway, the Center’s lineup of nationally touring blockbuster shows.

Judith has received numerous awards, including the “Breaking the Glass Ceiling Award” presented by the National Association of Women Business Owners (Palm Beach Chapter), The Women In Leadership Award (WILA) from Executive Women of the Palm Beaches in May 2014 and in 2017, the George W. Abbott Award for Life Achievement from the Carbonell Awards.
