Meredith Max Hodges—who goes by Max—joined Boston Ballet as Executive Director in 2014, and leads the company in partnership with Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen.
 
As an arts leader, Hodges has a passion for bringing a business approach to building audiences, broadening access, and supporting the creative process. Her wide range of experience combines both the not-for-profit arts and the for-profit management industries. Prior to joining Boston Ballet, Hodges served as Executive Director of Gallim Dance, a New York-based contemporary dance company that tours worldwide. At the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Hodges worked in a variety of roles, most recently as a Project Director leading strategic development, membership, and technology initiatives. She has also worked as a Senior Associate Consultant with Bain & Company in Boston and New York, consulting for clients in multiple industries, including private equity and consumer products.
 
Hodges is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Business School. She speaks about arts entrepreneurship at conferences and universities that have included the Juilliard School, the Massachusetts Conference for Women, the Dance/USA Annual Conference, Northeastern University, and TEDxBroadway. Her leadership has been recognized by the Commonwealth Institute and The Boston Globe, naming Boston Ballet one of the Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts two years in a row. Hodges was elected to Harvard University’s Board of Overseers in 2018.

Our artist/athletes are always pushing themselves to the edge. That passion and energy is what makes watching them so exhilarating.
