Wolfeboro, New Hampshire – Great Waters is excited to announce Doug Kiley has joined the organization as the new Executive Director. Doug states “I view this role as a once in a lifetime opportunity to strengthen and grow the most successful music entertainment offering in the Lakes Region. From my position at Brewster I always admired the dedicated volunteers and brilliant creators of the Great Waters Music Festival and I’m excited to now be part of that journey.”
Mr. Kiley joins Great Waters after over 20 years at Brewster Academy where he was most recently Assistant Director of Major Gifts. Barbara Olcott, Board Chair, says “It was a unanimous Board decision to bring Doug on. With a background in academia and strong community ties, we are thrilled to have him part of our organization.”
The hiring of Mr. Kiley comes at an exciting time for Great Waters, who previously had to cancel their 2020 Season due to Covid-19.

The series kicks-off on July 17th with jazz pianist Peter Cincotti and includes acts such as The Australian Bee Gees, Classic Albums Live, and Portsmouth native comedian Juston McKinney.
