NEW ORLEANS (AP) — French Quarter Festivals Inc., the nonprofit group that produces the French Quarter Festival, Satchmo Summerfest and Christmas New Orleans Style, is looking for a new executive director.

         The New Orleans Advocate’s Keith Spera reports Marci Schramm has resigned after leading the organization for nine years.

         In an emailed statement, Schramm said she resigned to spend more time with her two young daughters and to assist her husband, Scott Campbell, in running his publishing business, River Road Press.

         Under Schramm's leadership, the 33-year-old French Quarter Festival has continued to expand its footprint and increase attendance. The free festival, staged throughout the French Quarter in April, draws hundreds of thousands of attendees for a program of mostly local music.
