Theatre Communications Group has appointed Gordon Lane as its chief technology officer.

Lane comes to TCG, the national organization for American theater, from Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone, a not-for-profit economic development organization, where he worked as information technology officer. Lane will be replacing Joseph Cucchiara, the company’s former director of technology.

“One of the four pillars of our focus over the next few years is around innovation and digital transformation [and] I am thrilled to have Gordon on our team to lead these initiatives,” Adrian Budhu, deputy director and chief operating officer of TCG, said in the press release. “I’m hopeful that our strides in this area will serve as a model for the field; and streamline and improve the user and staff experiences throughout all our platforms.”
