Grammy Museum Promotes 3 Execs in Restructure Aimed at Expanding Music Education & Digital Initiatives

The Grammy Museum today (July 23) announced a senior staff reorganization, including the creation of three key senior leadership positions. Hilary Fahlsing will become vice president of finance and administration; David R. Sears will become vice president of education for Grammy in the Schools; and Lynne Sheridan will become vice president of artist relations, programs, and content.

The changes take effect Aug. 1. The execs will continue to report to Michael Sticka, Grammy Museum president.

Fahlsing was previously director of finance and administration; Sears was previously executive education director; Sheridan was previously senior director of public programs and artist relations.

Key features of the restructure include expanding the education department’s national music education programs, better known as Grammy in the Schools programs, such as Grammy Camp.

“As president of the Grammy Museum, it is my responsibility to ensure that everything we do helps to further our mission of celebrating our musical heritage and increasing access to music education, which is why we find it crucial to expand our education and digital initiatives,” Sticka said in a statement. “I’m thrilled to have Hilary, David, and Lynne join Grammy Museum COO Rita George on our expanded leadership team…”

Fahlsing will be responsible for the fiscal management of the museum, including finance and accounting, legal, human resources, and insurance/risk management, and will serve as a staff liaison to the board of directors. Fahlsing joined the museum in 2018.

Sears will be responsible for Grammy Camp, the Music Educator Award, career-based education programs, as well as growing the museum’s regional and national education programs and initiatives. Sears has been part of the Recording Academy staff for more than 25 years.

Sheridan will continue to run the museum’s popular Public Programs, as well as oversee its first digital content department. She will also continue to lead artist relations and manage the production team. Sheridan has been with Grammy Museum since its inception in 2007. A 30-year music industry veteran, Sheridan previously worked in New York at both Columbia and Epic Records, Tommy Boy Music and the Bob Dylan Music Company.
