Creative Scotland Announces Senior Team

Andrew Dixon, Chief Executive Designate of Creative Scotland has announced his senior team for the new national development body for the arts, culture and creative industries in Scotland.
Vena Dhupa, Iain Munro and Caroline Parkinson have been appointed as the three Directors of Creative Development. They will be tasked with leading Creative Scotland's engagement with the cultural sector and will take responsibility for Creative Scotland's investment and partnership in the arts, film and creative industries.
Other internal management team appointments include: Morag Arnot - Director of Communications and External Affairs, Alyson Hagan - Director of Finance and Operations and Karen Lannigan - Head of Human Resources.
Ken Hay, Chief Executive of Scottish Screen, will work with Creative Scotland through to the end of September 2010 to complete the key handover of work on Scottish Screen responsibilities and the creative industries. 

Andrew Dixon commented: "The combined team brings new expertise in international work and creative industries and a huge strength in continuity from the previous bodies. Iain Munro has led the successful Arts Lottery programme for Scotland, Caroline Parkinson brings a wealth of expertise in understanding the development needs of the cultural sector and Venu Dhupa is an internationally renowned player with a major track record in managing and developing cultural organisations and artists.
 We are grateful to Ken Hay at Scottish Screen for agreeing to stay on and contribute to the set up phase of Creative Scotland. He has been a major contributor to the thinking behind the new organisation and I wish him well in his future career."
Ewan Brown Chair of CS09 board said: "This is an important moment for Creative Scotland and builds on the momentum for the new organisation. Creative Scotland is becoming a reality and it is good to see a strong team now in place."
