Passing the gavel: Tom Hofstetter, right, founder and president of the Aiken Performing Arts Group, will step down from the leadership role and will be succeeded by board member Tony Ateca.
Tom Hofstetter, the founder and chairman of the Aiken Performing Arts Group Board, is stepping down from the leadership role.
For the past eight years, Hofstetter has led the APAG Board in bringing musical programs to Aiken - as well as establishing education outreach opportunities to the public schools.
An investment businessman by trade, Hofstetter, 80, has enjoyed a lifelong love of music.
"I'm a classical music guy," he said, "but I'm open to all aspects of it. I'm especially proud that APAG may be the largest volunteer education outreach organization in the state, bringing music to somewhere between 5,000 to 8,000 students."
Ateca, familiar to many Aiken County residents for his stage work with the Aiken Community Playhouse, said he expects Hofstetter to remain active with APAG and the board.
"Tom is obviously a legacy as the founder and driving force for APAG," Ateca said.
APAG's origins emerged from a 2002 request from now-retired Aiken City Manager Roger LeDuc, who asked Hofstetter to explore ways to expand the use of the URS Center for the Performing Arts.
Cathy Traver, APAG's administrator for more than three years, described the opportunity of working with Hofstetter as a great learning experience.
One of the difficult responsibilities for an retiring leader, Hofstetter said, is finding the right person to succeed him.

"Thom has a good eye for the kind of upscale professional talent we invite to perform in Aiken," said Thomas C. Hofstetter, founder of APAG, newly elected chairman of the board and chief executive officer.

Hofstetter, an investment businessman who retired to Aiken, was the right man for the job. In those 10 years, he took the role to new heights by forming the Aiken Performing Arts Group, which has been the vehicle to bring a new level of performances and musical outreach to Aiken.
He was the ideal candidate, having spent more than 40 years managing and developing show business companies.
Under Hofstetter's leadership, the entire community has been able to enjoy a level of artist performances unique to a small community. We've all been enriched by his efforts.
