ATG appoints new senior executive director

by -

Ambassador Theatre Group has appointed a new senior executive director to oversee its push to expand in both the domestic and international markets.

Peter Kavanagh has been brought in to take on the role of business affairs director. He will look to help co-ordinate ATG’s planned moves into both Europe and North America, which will involve the company opening a New York office.

He commented: “It is an enormously exciting time to be joining ATG. The group has a fantastic platform for further expansion and significant intellectual property rights, which have considerable international potential. The ATG management team is highly regarded in the industry and I’m very much looking forward to joining the team and playing my part in continuing the ATG success story.”

Kavanagh has for the past ten years served as ATG’s principal external legal advisor and was instrumental in the formation of First Family Entertainment – the company’s joint pantomime venture with Live Nation.

For the past five years, he has been a partner at legal firm Hunton & Williams, where he has represented a wide variety of clients in international mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance transactions.

ATG managing director Howard Panter commented: “We are delighted to welcome Peter to the executive board of ATG. He has been a vital part of our growth and success over the last ten years. Peter’s enthusiasm, commitment, knowledge and wealth of experience will be a tremendous asset to the company as we seek to expand internationally over the next years.”
