Kenneth O. Hill, former Utah director of public relations for US WEST, has joined Ballet West as vice president for development. Susan Barrell, who was serving as Ballet West's administrative vice president, takes over as the company's general manager. Hill and Barrell assume the duties formerly carried out by Trever Cushman, who resigned as president of Ballet West in May.
Hill will be responsible for the company's contributed income, including grants, corporate gifts and private donations. He retired from US WEST in March after 31 years with the telephone company. He has served in leadership positions for numerous civic and charitable organizations, most recently as chairman of the board for the United Way (1990) and executive director of the Salt Lake Radio Broadcasters Association (1990).
