Create NSW Leadership Update


Create NSW has announced a new leadership structure which gives focus to their priorities to deliver on the government’s commitments to driving excellence in arts and culture.

From Monday 16 September 2019, the Create NSW Leadership Team will consist of:

Executive Director of Create NSW – a new role that brings together the arts, screen, culture and infrastructure functions; responsible for the leadership of the organisation and reporting to Kate Foy. This vacant role will be advertised shortly and fulfilled by Ms Foy until a candidate is appointed.

Head, Create Infrastructure – Ms Annette Pitman will act as Head of Create Infrastructure, leading the development and delivery of cultural infrastructure projects across NSW.

Director, Partnerships and Policy – Ms Alex Bowen will lead strategic coordination of policy across government as well as interactions with the Commonwealth and the arts and cultural sector.

Director, Business Operations, Investment and Governance – Ms Sue Procter will lead this enhanced role and be the single point of coordination for administration of arts investment, grants, supporting the new Artform Boards and providing financial management.

Head, Screen NSW – Ms Grainne Brunsdon will be Head of Screen NSW, a new role that builds upon promoting NSW as Australia’s leading state for film and television production and the location of choice for international and local production and post-production.

The teams that sit within Create NSW remain unchanged, however there will be a realignment of reporting relationships.

Key details will be updated on the Create NSW website after 16 September for ease of contact.
