• 9 Investigates: Concerns over DPAC top officials' resignations

    Updated:

    ORLANDO, Fla. - There are concerns surrounding Orlando's new Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts center after several top officials quit.

    Five vice presidents have left in the past 13 months, and two of them left in the last 10 days.

    9 Investigates learned there is more than just drama on the stage.

    "I think leadership needs to take a hard look at why these people are not happy with their jobs," said Orlando Ballet board member, Ted Maines.

    Maines has been a supporter of the arts for 25 years, and said he's concerned by the upheaval.

    "We have to have these systems in place where the performing arts center will succeed, because it's critical that it be a success," said Maines.

    Four of the five VP's relocated to Orlando from other cities to work in Orlando, but the five of them left their high-paying salaries without having another job lined up.

    "That's indicative of a problem, a common denominator that needs to be identified by leadership," said Maines.

    A DPAC representative said that many executives see themselves as builders, and once projects go into operations they decide to look for opportunities elsewhere.

    Four of the five people who recently resigned worked at the center for a few months.
