Nick Parr has been announced as the new chief executive of Dundee Rep.
He succeeds chief executive and joint artistic director Philip Howard, who previously announced his decision to step down from the role in the summer.
Mr Parr joins the Rep from Festival City Theatres Trust, the organisation responsible for running Edinburgh’s Festival and King’s Theatres, where he held the post of commercial director.
He said: “I am really looking forward to joining Dundee Rep in September. After four years at the Festival and King’s Theatres in Edinburgh, I am thrilled to be taking on this new challenge in Dundee, and to be working with artistic directors Fleur Darkin and Jemima Levick on the future success of Scottish Dance Theatre and Dundee Rep.
“With the spotlight focused on Dundee, especially on the role of arts and culture, this a very exciting time to be working in the city.”
Peter Inglis, chairman of Dundee Rep Theatre Ltd, said: “We are delighted to welcome Nick Parr to DRTL. He brings a wealth of experience of the UK arts and culture industry to Dundee Rep at an exciting time in the development for our organisation and the city.
“The board is confident that Nick will inspire our organisation and continue to build our reputation for excellence in theatre and dance at home and internationally, with our roots firmly in the community of Dundee.”
