Prior to joining the Old Vic, she was associate producer at Playful Productions.

She will run JCP with artistic director Jonathan Church, and her role will include developing new work.

Church said Gatti’s “exceptional combination of good taste, artistic excellence and commercial acumen” would allow the company to “continue to grow the quality and reach of the work we make”.

Gatti said: “I have long been an admirer of Jonathan’s work and have had the great fortune to have collaborated on productions over the years. His taste, integrity and respect for artists and others in the industry is second to none. I look forward to sharing this next journey of making work together.”

She joins the company in January, 2020, replacing Kathy Bourne, who has been appointed executive producer of Chichester Festival Theatre.
