BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - One of the men responsible for ushering in a new era of success and financial growth for the Vermont Symphony Orchestra has resigned.

Officials say Alan Jordan stepped down Friday after managing the state’s professional orchestra for more than 16 years.

Jordan became executive director of the VSO in 1999. He took over just before Jaime Laredo, a world-renowned violinist and conductor, became music director.

During Jordan’s tenure the VSO mounted its first-ever endowment campaign, raising more than $3.5 million. The VSO’s current endowment stands at nearly $4.5 million.

Jordan expanded new music activities, including the creation of a new music advisor position and the commissioning or co-commissioning of more than 30 new works.

Jordan says he’s been honored to serve the VSO, but it’s time to seek new challenges.
