Music for All’s (MFA) Board of Directors today announced that Eric L. Martin, Esq., C.F.E.E., has resigned as Chief Executive Officer of Music for All. Mr. Martin submitted his letter of resignation to the Board on April 15, concluding more than 25 years of MFA leadership.
“It has been a privilege and pleasure to serve Music for All” Mr. Martin said, “and to support and contribute to the achievement and advancement of its mission. There is still much important work to be done and I wish and hope for the best for the entire MFA team.”
“On behalf of the Board, staff, and everyone who benefitted from his leadership, we thank Mr. Martin for his enduring contributions to Music for All,” Gayl Doster, Chairman of the MFA Board of Directors said. “We wish him only the best in all of his future endeavors.”
In accepting Mr. Martin’s resignation, the Board elected Jeremy L. Earnhart, Ed.D, to the position of President and CEO of the organization.
“The election of Dr. Earnhart to CEO is clear indication he has earned the confidence of the entire organization to guide us through what will be challenging times, said Doster. “In the two years that Dr. Earnhart has been with us, he has demonstrated a clear vision, an inspiring sense of operational excellence, and a real passion for music. We could not be in better hands.”
“Even in the most difficult times,” said Earnhart, “few things have the uplifting power of music. Although musicians are staying socially distant now, music brings hearts and spirits together in ways nothing else quite can. What we at Music for All learn during these days will make us stronger in different ways and will enable us to reinforce our fundamental mission of making music available to everyone in the new tomorrows that everyone will share. I’m thrilled to be part of that process.”
