Scotland's national arts and culture body, Creative Scotland has announced their new Chief Executive's appointment.
Andrew Dixon (pictured), Chief Executive of the Newcastle Gateshead Initiative for the last five years, has over 30 years experience working in the arts media and creative industries.
The appointment as Chief Executive will be effective from the date that Creative Scotland is formally established.
However, as Chief Executive Designate, he will be invited to participate in Creative Scotland 2009 board meetings, from later this month.
Ewan Brown, Chair of Creative Scotland 2009 Ltd said: "In Andrew Dixon we have found someone with the qualities essential to lead our new national arts and culture organisation, Creative Scotland.
"I am delighted we have been able to secure someone of Andrew's calibre, with experience grounded in cultural policy, cultural regeneration and partnerships, both local and international.
"Andrew will work with the existing Creative Scotland 2009 board to ensure continuity and momentum as we move towards the establishment of the new organisation in the summer."
Andrew Dixon commented: "I believe I have the track record and leadership experience to meet the bold creative vision set for Creative Scotland.
"I'm excited to be back working directly with culture and creative organisations and believe that Creative Scotland offers an exciting opportunity to engage the nation and deliver a new model of cultural development of international significance."
Culture Minister Fiona Hyslop warmly welcomed the appointment stating: "With Andrew Dixon's combination of leadership skills, experience of the arts and culture and his success in building strategic partnerships across the public and private sectors, CS09 Ltd has appointed an excellent candidate to lead the new organisation.
"These skills will enable him to fulfil the Government's ambitions for Creative Scotland - and the pivotal contribution of the arts and creative industries to a modern, confident nation."
