London’s Donmar Warehouse has appointed Henny Finch as executive producer.
Finch is currently executive director of Hofesh Shechter Company, which she joined in May 2016 after 10 years as executive director of Headlong Theatre.
She will begin the role on January 7, 2019, succeeding Kate Pakenham, and will support newly appointed artistic director Michael Longhurst in the running of the venue when he joins in March.
Finch said: “I am a long-time admirer of Mike’s bold and beautiful work, and I can’t wait to join him at the Donmar as this small but mighty theatre embarks on its next adventure.
“I am very grateful to the wonderful Kate Pakenham for leaving the theatre in such great shape and with an exceptional team, and I’m very much looking forward to getting to know the staff, the supporters, the audiences and the artists over the next few months.”
Longhurst added: “I am so delighted that Henny will be joining us as executive producer. I was blown away by her dynamic approach and cannot wait to start working with her to deliver the future work of the Donmar.”
