We know you will be pleased to meet Tiffany Lucas, our new Chief Development Officer, succeeding Andreas Tischhauser who has returned to Colorado for family reasons.  Andreas will retain an active connection with Chanticleer as a member of our National Advisory Board.

A native of Kansas City, Missouri, Tiffany relocates to San Francisco with her husband and puppy from Melbourne, Australia where she has been Development Director of the Melbourne Theatre Company for the last three years. 

Before her passion for assuring that the arts are supported led her to Development, she had a thriving career as a lawyer specializing in commercial and financial transactions and before that as a Prosecuting Attorney in Missouri.  Her academic pursuits in Australia and the U.S. included communications, political science, bioethics and law. Tiffany was very familiar with Chanticleer when she read our job posting:

When I heard that Chanticleer was looking for a new Chief Development Officer, I was very excited. I have always been incredibly passionate about music. My mother is a choir director and pianist, and some of my earliest memories include sitting in empty theaters and churches watching my mother direct choir practice and accompany musicians. Listening to Chanticleer’s Christmas albums during the holiday season was a family tradition I loved. I can’t wait for Christmas!

I am looking forward to meeting everyone involved with this great company, and to helping ensure that Chanticleer is there for us forever with an even broader base of support
— Tiffany Lucas
