Announcement of Selection of Executive Search Firm for TEA’s Executive Director Position

February 25, 2021

BURBANK – The Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) is looking to hire a visionary Executive Director to lead the organization through this period of opportunity, innovation, and strategic growth. In order to find the best person to fill this crucial role, TEA has selected an executive search firm, Vetted Solutions, to lead the search effort for TEA’s next Executive Director.

Vetted Solutions, headquartered in Washington DC with offices in Chicago and Los Angeles, has a demonstrated track record of executive recruiting within the association space and a client-focused approach to the process. TEA will be served by a focused team of recruiters who have both association and specific entertainment and hospitality industry experience providing a comprehensive approach to identifying potential candidates. The process is led by Vetted Solutions President and Founder, Jim Zaniello, FASAE.

A position profile is anticipated in mid-March. Candidates interested in receiving the position profile should email [email protected]. The search process will continue until the right global executive is identified, though we hope to announce our next Executive Director by early summer.

Thank you to everyone who attended last Friday. Our TEA Town Hall gatherings are intended to give everyone in the association a voice as we work to grow a truly global community. Your participation helps TEA become stronger, smarter, more culturally aware, and more universally inclusive. Every member is an integral part of the TEA - and the Town Hall gives each of us the chance to talk about how things are going, to share our progress, to recognize our growing pains and acknowledge the missteps we will make along the way.
