Previously President and CEO of the Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) from 2009 through the end of 2015, Veronique revitalized BCA programs, spearheaded initiatives to increase services for working artists, and explored ways to connect with youth and community organizations in Boston’s vibrant South End.

Prior to her work in Boston, Le Melle directed a number of arts and cultural organizations including the Louisiana Division of the Arts. As the Division’s Executive Director, she successfully restructured Louisiana’s Grants Program and implemented a streamlined grant application process.

As Director of Cultural Affairs & Tourism for the Queens Borough President’s Office, her responsibilities included the oversight of cultural policy, grants administration and the development of tourism strategies for the Borough of Queens. Her charge was to support and advise both the established cultural institutions in Queens and new community-based arts groups who provide vital services within their neighborhoods.
