The Board of CarriageWorks has announced the appointment of Lisa Havilah as its new CEO. 

Her appointment follows an international search for a talented, creative and committed leader to steer CarriageWorks into the next phase of its development.

“CarriageWorks’ vision is to be a leader in the development, presentation and support of contemporary arts in Australia and the Board believes Lisa’s experience will make a significant contribution to achieving this goal,” said David Wyndham, Chair of the CarriageWorks Board.

Havilah is currently the Director of Campbelltown Arts Centre. Since the Centre’s establishment in 2005 she has pioneered the development of an innovative multidisciplinary contemporary arts program that has engaged the diverse communities of western Sydney.

As the leading arts centre in western Sydney, it has both a national and international reputation for innovative programming.

Under Havilah’s directorship Campbelltown Arts Centre has achieved extraordinary levels of organisational growth. This growth is the result of the establishment of strong strategic partnerships across all tiers of government, and a collaborative approach to program development.

“I am proud of what we have achieved and the people I have worked with at Campbelltown Arts Centre, and excited to join CarriageWorks at such an important time in the organisation’s development,” Havilah said.

“CarriageWorks holds a vital place in the cultural fabric of Sydney, and is home to an extraordinary group of resident companies. I look forward to building on the many achievements that CarriageWorks has already delivered.”

Havilah will commence her new role at CarriageWorks in February.
