The Glasgow Citizens has announced that executive director Judith Kilvington has been appointed as joint chief executive alongside Dominic Hill.
Kilvington joined the company in the newly created role of executive director in 2013. Hill will continue as artistic director as well as holding the joint chief executive role.
Speaking of the appointment, Hill said: “Judith and I have worked closely together over the last two years and her management of the financial and operational side of the business has been critical to recent success. The time is now right to cement that partnership.”
A spokeswoman for the Citizens told The Stage that when Kilvington’s appointment was originally made, the theatre’s board was keen to ensure that the partnership was fully working before moving the role to that of joint chief executive.
The Citizens is currently embarking on a £20.5 million capital project.
The spokeswoman added: “Judith is very much involved in spearheading that so that Dominic is able to fully concentrate on the artistic programme. Judith is partnering him on that, but also leading on the capital project and on all the other areas of the business.”
