Los Angeles, CA, USA — In June of this year, Jonathan Katz became Chairman of Cinnabar to allow the company to transition to the next generation of Katz’s.  His nephew Kip Katz, who has been Cinnabar’s General Manager for over 15 years is taking on all operational, personnel and facility management responsibilities as the company’s new Chief Operating Officer.  His son Basil Katz, who has been working at Cinnabar for the past 3 years, is taking on the role of Chief Executive Officer.  He will lead the company’s efforts to remain at the forefront of our industry as Cinnabar continues to grow and evolve over the next generation.  Jonathan will remain directly involved in the company, but will devote more of his energy to my work on the board of the Western Museums Association and consulting directly with institutions about new business models for exhibitions.
