Don Anderson, Controller
Don joined the nonprofit AT&T Performing Arts Center in 2002 at the beginning of the design and construction phase of what was preliminarily known as the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts. Throughout the construction phase, Don’s role was project cost manager. In this role, Don worked with the project team, architects and construction companies to track the costs of the project as the iconic venues were being constructed.
Since the completion of construction in 2009, Don has served in various roles within finance and currently is the Controller. He is the Center’s longest-serving staff member.
Being a part of the Center from its very beginning and experiencing firsthand the culmination of years of fundraising, planning, design, construction, the 2005 groundbreaking and ultimately the grand opening in October 2009, has made his years-long tenure at the Center very rewarding and exciting.
Outside of work, Don enjoys traveling and attending the diverse programming at the Center.
Don is originally from Broken Arrow, OK and relocated to Dallas in 1991 after graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in accounting.
