On the move: latest sector appointments

Malthouse co-CEO to step down, TNA farewells Executive Director, and more.

Malthouse Theatre today (28 August) announced that Executive Producer and co-CEO Sarah Neal will step down from the role in late November, after a remarkable 10 years that has delivered unprecedented growth, bold artistic endeavours, a commitment to inclusivity and a fearless approach to challenges.

Neal said: ‘Since 2013, Malthouse has been my shabby-chic share home – backstage, on stage, in the audience, at the bar, on the road and around the globe. Leading Malthouse has been a privilege I’ve never taken for granted. Alongside my co-CEO, Matt [Lutton], we’ve steered the wheel through good times and the odd pandemic – always navigating to the North Star of artists and audiences, who are both the reason and the point.
