I've been the Chief Executive of the company since February 2015, taking overall responsibility for all aspects of the company’s work, including strategy and planning, funding and finance, external partnerships and collaborations and engaging audiences, participants and the wider public. Prior to this role, I was Director of Creative Programmes at the Birmingham Hippodrome, responsible for major outdoor festivals, commissioning new work and the creative learning programme. From 2008 to 2012 I was the West Midlands Creative Programmer for London 2012, commissioning dance participation and performance programmes, as well as many hundreds of diverse cultural events, with audiences and participants totalling three million. For twenty years I worked in cultural marketing and audience development – for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Warwick Arts Centre, mac Birmingham and latterly as Chief Executive of Audiences Central, the audience development agency for the West Midlands.
