Express Media appoints new CEO
Express Media is pleased to announce the appointment of Lucy Hamilton as its new General Manager / CEO.
Lucy comes to Express Media from Regional Arts Victoria, where she was Partnerships Coordinator. She has held voluntary roles with Multicultural Arts Victoria and the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival, and worked as a stage manager and production manager in the United Kingdom. She has a Master of Arts and Cultural Management from the University of Melbourne and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Oxford.
“I am thrilled to be joining an organisation dedicated to supporting young Australian writers,” Lucy said.
“I have long admired the work Express Media does in providing access to opportunities and acting as a platform for diverse Australian voices. I look forward to continuing to facilitate that excellent and important work.”
Express Media Chair, Tracy O’Shaughnessy, said the Board is delighted to welcome Lucy to the organisation.
“The role will give Lucy the opportunity to draw on and develop the great work she has been doing at Regional Arts Victoria. Her strengths in arts administration and strategic partnerships will be invaluable in providing Express Media with a strong base for supporting our creative team as well as growing the wonderful programs Express Media provide for young writers,” Tracy said.
“The Board want to recognise the excellent job our outgoing General Manager / CEO, Pippa Bainbridge, has done during her tenure at Express Media. Her skilful, compassionate and strategic management has steered the organisation through some very difficult times. We wish Pippa every success in her new role at Next Wave.”
Lucy will be commencing her position with Express Media on September 1st.
