Glasgow Citizens’ executive director Judith Kilvington to step down
Judith Kilvington is to step down as executive director of the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow, after five years.
The theatre said Kilvington will be relocating to London at the end of the year, vacating her position as executive director and joint chief executive, which she holds with artistic director Dominic Hill.
Kilvington will leave as the Citizens commences a £19.4 million redevelopment, which is due to be completed in 2020.
She said the role had been “an honour and a privilege”.
Announcing Kilvington’s departure, the theatre’s chair April Chamberlain said: “Judith has made a remarkable contribution to the Citizens Theatre in the last five years – in particular, leading the planning and fundraising for our capital project. Raising over £18 million of our £19.4 million target is an incredible achievement.
“Her passion, tenacity and determination have kept the project on track and alongside Dominic’s artistic success have secured the future of our historic company and building in the Gorbals.”
The theatre will begin the search for a new executive director immediately.
