Staff Profile: Mary Koutsoubos – Director of Development, Major Gifts and Special Campaigns
How long have you worked at Soulpepper and tell us what your job consisted of lately.
Well, this is my second time at Soulpepper. I was the Director of Development for several years before taking a 3-year hiatus, to work at the TSO and have my 3rd son! I’ve been back now for a year and a half in a perfect new role as Director of Major Gifts and Special Campaigns. I have been working with the Soulpepper team on our new $10 million Creative Capital Campaign, and yesterday at our AGM we announced that we are already at 77% of goal thanks to the many special donors who have contributed transformative gifts.
When you’re not at work, what are you doing?
My husband and I have three very lively and mischievous sons at home to keep us busy and on our toes. I love it! When I’m on my own I relish the quiet time – these days, I try catch up on sleep, mostly 😉
What do you love about working at Soulpepper?
I love the pace and energy at Soulpepper. The big ideas that constantly challenge us and propel the team forward. The spirit of getting things done and doing them well. And, the special donors who understand this by supporting the vision and giving back – I learn so much from them about being a better human.
