The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) has promoted Julia Leggett to the position of chief executive officer.
Leggett will take up her position with immediate effect and resume responsibility for all aspects of business development. She joined ACM in 2004, having previously held several director level positions in large technology companies.
Speaking of the appointment, Leggett said, "It is an honour to be entrusted to lead all the ACM brands both domestically and internationally. My key objective is to ensure ACM continues to maintain its market leadership in contemporary music education by consistently delivering the highest possible standards in music education.”
Chairman and founder Phil Brookes said, "I'm thrilled to appoint Julia to the position of CEO after the pivotal role she has played in ACM's success. Julia's passion for music and education combined with her talent for marketing and innovation makes her perfectly equipped to spearhead the continued growth of ACM Worldwide.”
ACM is currently in talks with several major overseas cities about setting up colleges under the ACM brand, delivering ACM’s curriculum. Here in the UK, plans for ACM centres in major cities are in the pipeline, with ACM South Coast (Bournemouth) opening last year, and another centre due in Manchester.
