Following the recent announcement of Punchdrunk’s move to the Woolwich Creative District in 2020, the Royal Borough of Greenwich is delighted to announce the appointment of James Heaton as the operating Trust’s Chief Executive Officer. He will take up the role in August 2019, having over 10 years’ experience in Director and Executive-level arts and entertainment venue positions. Currently Operations Director for the Nimax group of West End theatres, he spent seven years at Camden’s Roundhouse.
James Heaton said “The Council’s incredible vision for the transformation of the Royal Arsenal site presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity not only for me, but more importantly for the communities of Woolwich and Greenwich, and the cultural life of London. I’m honoured to have the task of bringing people together within the walls of these beautiful buildings to create something amazing, the impact of which will be felt far beyond them. It’s my dream job.”
