I Am Seattle Center-Tom Israel

TOM ISRAEL, Director of Finance & Administration for Seattle Center

“Seattle Center uses the cultural aspects—the performances, the entertainment—as the vehicle to help give people a place to plug into and find something that speaks to them. The arts and culture and spaces that happen here provide that. So, it is an interesting and unusual mix that helps to weave the fabric of the community. I don’t think we get to determine what that is or direct it, but we provide a place for it to happen. It’s sort of like watching a cake build itself in a way. It is what the community wants and needs it to be. As public servants, we help make that happen without directing it.”
