Today we'd like to introduce you to Artie Allen.
Artie Allen started at the JCC in Dallas about 15 years ago as the assistant CEO and is currently the acting CEO for the J of Dallas.
Great, so let's dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you've had to overcome?
Smooth is not the word that would be used. With any organizations, you have ups and downs and we have had our fair share of them. I wake up each morning happy to enter the campus and look forward to any opportunities of growth I have here at the J. I love all the members and look forward to seeing them and providing an amazing destination with outstanding programming and a social hub for all to come and experience.
Alright – so let's talk business. Tell us about The J of Dallas – what should we know?
