Texas Ballet Theater (TBT), the resident ballet company of Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth and the Winspear Opera House on the AT&T Performing Arts Center Campus in Dallas, has named Claire Hicks as its new director of development effective May 6.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Texas Ballet Theater and am confident that the breadth and depth of my experience, skills, and passion will make a positive impact at TBT,” Hicks said.

“I look forward to working with the esteemed Board of Governors, the incredible staff, faculty and dancers who make up this vibrant and talented company,” she said.

Hicks comes to Texas Ballet Theater from Texas Cultural Trust in Austin where she served as director of development, leading fundraising for the Texas Medal of Arts Awards (TMAA), Texas Women for the Arts, Art Can initiative, and Texas Young Masters, including $10,000-$750,000 gifts from individual donors, corporate sponsors, and foundations, TBT said in a news release.

“I am thrilled that following an extensive search, Claire has agreed to become our Director of Development,” said Vanessa Logan, TBT executive director.

“The skills Claire brings to our institution, her business acumen, and her dedication to the arts will undoubtedly help grow Texas Ballet Theater’s fundraising efforts,” she said. “The TBT search committee recognized that her knowledge and experience make her uniquely qualified for this position, and we look forward to her leadership as we take TBT to the next level.”

Hicks was raised in Fort Worth and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Texas A&M University and a Masters of Public Administration from Texas State University. Hicks is active in the Junior League and Association of Fundraising Professionals.
