Arthur Seessel is MSO interim CEO

Arthur Seessel III will be the interim CEO of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra, which will be conducting – no pun intended – a national search for a successor to departing president and CEO Ryan Fleur.

Fleur is leaving Memphis to be the Executive Vice President of Orchestra Advancement with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Seessel is a native Memphian and the former president of Seessel’s Supermarkets. He also serves on a variety of corporate and community board.
