Submitted by Communications Department on 12/8/2017


December 8, 2017 - The Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Lauren Brett Randolph to the newly created position of Executive Director of the Randolph College for the Performing Arts. The appointment follows the resignation of George Randolph as President of the Randolph College. As Executive Director, Lauren Brett Randolph will provide leadership and management of all programs of the Randolph College for the Performing Arts, according to the strategic direction set by the Board of Directors.

Lauren’s commitment to educating and inspiring young performers has spanned almost 30 years. For 12 years, she managed day-to-day operations of the Randolph College for the Performing Arts (then known as the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts). Among other duties, she oversaw policy and curriculum implementation for an industry-leading post-secondary program providing professional training for aspiring Triple Threat talent. She also served as admissions director and financial aid officer for the Randolph College’s post-secondary program until August 2013, returning to that position in 2016.

In addition, she created and developed Randolph Kids, a recreational performing arts program which also generated musical theatre training-based projects in partnership with the City of Toronto and the York Region District School Board. For five years she was also executive producer of the Randolph Young Company, a performance-based youth theatre group that staged three large-scale musical productions per year. In 2011, Lauren developed the performing arts curriculum at Stardust Academy, a performing arts school in Amman, Jordan.

Lauren is also a certified executive life coach who, in 2017, became a leadership coach for the Canadian Olympic Committee Olympic Co-op.

Lauren spent 15 years as a certified head coach, developing the skills of national-level rhythmic gymnasts, and leading them to compete at the World Championships and Pan Am Games. During that time, she was recognized by the Canadian Rhythmic Sportive Gymnastic Federation as Coach of the Year. Lauren herself was a member of the national team, representing Canada at the World Championships in Munich.
