Scottish National Ballet has appointed Steven Roth as Executive Director. He will take up the newly created post at Scotland’s national dance company in March 2016, joining Artistic Director and Chief Executive Christopher Hampson. Hampson joined Scottish Ballet in 2012 as Artistic Director, and took over both the artistic leadership and Chief Executive position in June 2015.
The company said that the appointment of an Executive Director would strengthen the senior management team and the organisation’s strategic vision.
Chairman Norman Murray said: “We set out to secure an Executive Director who possesses the right blend of commerciality and leadership to support Christopher Hampson and to complement his visionary plans for the future.”
Roth joins Scottish Ballet from West Australian Ballet, where he is currently Chief Executive. He has held the role for eight years and will step down in February 2016.
Alix Meekison of FWB Park Brown commented: “After an exhaustive global search we are delighted Steven will be relocating to Glasgow from Australia to join Scottish Ballet. He brings a wealth of skills and experience which will undoubtedly be of huge value to this wonderful organisation.”
