Congratulations to both Sue and Belvoir from all of us at TNN!
Belvoir is pleased to announce the appointment of Sue Donnelly, one of Australia’s most prominent and experienced arts administrators, to the position of Executive Director of the legendary theatre company.
Sam Meers, Belvoir Chair, said today, “I’m thrilled to be announcing Sue Donnelly’s appointment as Executive Director and Co-CEO of Belvoir. Sue has been appointed after an extensive recruitment recruitment process that included interviews with an impressive short list of potential international and Australian candidates. The breadth and depth of Sue’s experience across the industry, and the esteem in which she is held by colleagues worldwide, make her the standout choice as our new Executive Director. We look forward to an exciting future under her joint leadership of the company with our Artistic Director, Eamon Flack.”
Our Artistic Director Eamon Flack said of the appointment “This is very good news. Sue is an old friend of Belvoir’s, she knows the company from the inside and she’s very much at home with its idiosyncrasies. Her sense of the work we make and the kinds of risks this company is built on, is excellent. She knows what makes Belvoir special and she’ll fight the good fight. I’m particularly pleased because Sue was the acting General Manager when I joined Belvoir as the Literary Manager in 2006. She was tough-minded and kind-hearted then, and she is now. We’ll make a good odd couple, I think, in the best possible way. It’s terrific news.”
