New Administrator at the Factory

The Torpedo Factory Artists’ Association has welcomed John Luna into a newly created Administrator position to oversee the day to day business and operations of the Torpedo Factory Art Center.

TFAA Board President Rosemary Covey says, “We are thrilled to have John Luna come on board. His unique mixture of business and marketing skills combined with his genuine interest in the arts make him a great asset to the organization.”

After the consideration of some 20 well suited applicants to the position, the TFAA board selected Alexandria resident John Luna to lead their managerial endeavors. Mr. Luna’s background includes over 16 years experience in various managerial roles spanning key industries of merit for the Torpedo Factory. His experiences include work in the construction industry, media, manufacturing and operations management, healthcare, education, and project management for government and military agencies. He has worked for some notable organizations such as ESPN where he was a technical director and program producer, Bose Corporation where he still holds a top sales record, and Drexel University College of Medicine where he was senior administrator overseeing the first fully accredited on-line Continuing Medical Education program in the United States.

Mr. Luna’s education includes three degrees spanning Business with a focus in Public Relations, Audiovisual Engineering, and a scientific degree in Communications with a focus on Rhetorical Studies.

Mr. Luna is also active in the arts. In addition to being a published graphic artist and independent film actor, John can also be found playing a wide variety of music as a guitarist and bass player. He has produced and directed television as well as industrial film projects and has also been published as a voiceover artist. His past work in paint and digital photography are a personal hobby. As such he brings a solid merger of business acumen and creative talent to the Torpedo Factory for the benefit of all.

While Mr. Luna is a recent addition, as of November 2009, he’s already settling right into the daily needs of the Torpedo Factory Art Center. John is actively engaging the membership and affiliates of the TFAC daily and believes in an open culture of progressive action and personal accountability.
We wish Luna the best as the TF continues to reinvent itself.
