Chris Stafford has been appointed the new Chief Executive of the Leicester Curve following Fiona Allan’s departure to lead Birmingham Hippodrome this autumn.
Curve is delighted to have found its next Chief Executive from amongst its Senior Management team, where Stafford has been working as Executive Producer for the past two years.
Stafford brings a wealth of experience to the role of Chief Executive. His two years as Executive Producer for Curve have seen him substantially grow the company’s artistic programme, as well as develop Curve’s national and international touring portfolio. All this has been achieved at a time of great insecurity for the arts, and has seen the current team deliver the company’s most successful programme both artistically and commercially.
