Executive Director Appointed at ACE dance and music


This month, Ann-Marie Wright officially starts her role as ACE dance and music’s new Executive Director. Ann-Marie has a wealth of skills, experience and enthusiasm to bring to ACE and we are looking forward to the positive changes and developments that this will bring to the organisation.

Ann-Marie joins us from Public Health England where she provided project management support for large health transformation projects. After achieving her first degree in Psychology at Staffordshire University she went on to train as a probation officer and completed her second degree in Criminal Justice studies at the University of Birmingham.  Since then she has worked across several public sector organisations, including the Local Authority, NHS and education providers across England. She will be working closely with Ian and Gail Parmel, our co-founders and the senior management team, to manage the company, fulfil the 10-year plan and ensure the company is best placed to continue delivering new and exciting projects in the future.  Ann-Marie said of this new venture:

” I’m excited to see how my new role will develop and become more  defined over time. I’m eager to find ways to support this dynamic and diverse team of artists. “

We’d like to welcome Ann-Marie to the ACE dance and music team!
