Utility exec to run N.C. Symphony

The N.C. Symphony has picked a former utility executive as interim CEO, a position that could last into next year as the financially struggling orchestra looks for a permanent director.

The appointment of Don Davis, 65, will temporarily put two retired engineers and ex-executives from Progress Energy in the top two positions at the cultural organization. The symphony's board chairman, William Cavanaugh III, is the former CEO and board chairman of Raleigh-based Progress.

Davis agreed to take over the symphony's day-to-day operations after symphony director David Chambless Worters said this month he planned leave to run a cultural foundation in Texas. Davis takes over on Monday at the symphony as the organization spends an expected 3 to 6 months to find a permanent leader.
