I know a lot has been said about this, but consider:
Some people actually believe Eric can do both of those mammoth jobs.
No one I talk to believes that a company can have a marketing director who is also the box office manager. One person of authority on these issues said that the box office manager is the most important employee. The face of the company for 80% of the audience.
So, bottom line, this restructuring is untenable.
Sadly, I doubt the Board will read my blogs. But you can send them to Eric!
