The Skylight Opera named Amy Jensen its new managing director, the theater announced today in a release.

Jensen previously served as Skylight's finance director, and has held positions at the Milwaukee Art Museum, UPAF and most recently, as the vice president and CFO of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.

"The Skylight has gained a skilled professional with 15 years of experience in leadership roles in the Milwaukee arts community," said Joan Lounsbery, former Skylight Opera Theatre managing director and current interim managing director. "Her financial expertise and her love of the Skylight make her the perfect choice for this organization."
