Bristol Music Trust has announced it has appointed Clare Jack as chief operating officer for Colston Hall.
Jack (pictured), who was previously development director at Bath Festivals, will start her role in October. She will join the senior management team at the historic venue, and will focus on implementing the Trust’s strategy across their individual departments.
She will oversee the day to day running of the venue as well as Bristol Plays Music, the education arm of the Trust, and will work closely with its CEO Louise Mitchell to take a strategic overview of the financial, commercial and operational competitiveness of the organisation.
Mitchell sad: “We are delighted that Clare Jack will be joining us at such an important time for Bristol Music Trust and Colston Hall. Clare has an outstanding track record of shaping the commercial and operational arms of businesses, as well as being a passionate lover of music and the arts.
“She will be vital to our work of ensuring the success of our exciting transformation project of our main hall and Lantern buildings and helping us to be business ready for the reopening of our concert hall in 2020.”
Jack will also be responsible for driving forward the financial imperatives of the business in order to support, develop and sustain the charitable objectives of the Trust.
