Tom Hoch


Hennepin Theatre Trust




Few have done more to ensure that downtown Minneapolis remains a compelling cultural mecca than Tom Hoch has. As the new chair of the Minneapolis Downtown Council and Downtown Improvement District board of directors, Hoch will focus on leveraging downtown’s image. At Hennepin Theatre Trust, he opened the New Century Theatre to fill the needs of smaller local productions, and is leading a partnership to establish a walkable center of arts, culture and economic activity that stretches from the Sculpture Garden and Mississippi riverfront to Nicollet Mall and First Avenue.
