Sir John Tusa is to be the new Chair of the Clore Leadership Programme, the initiative of the Clore Duffield Foundation which aims to strengthen leadership across a wide range of cultural activities. He will take up his appointment in January 2009.
Founded in 2003, the Leadership Programme offers Fellowships and Short Courses for individual leaders, and training for members of Boards of Directors and senior staff of cultural organisations. It also disseminates best practice and speaks out as advocate for cultural leadership and excellence. Sue Hoyle was appointed Director of the Clore Leadership Programme in August this year.
Tusa’s previous roles include Managing Director of BBC World Service (1986 to 1992), and Managing Director of the Barbican Centre (1995 to 2007).
He is Chairman of the Court of Governors for the University of the Arts London and also Chairman of the Wigmore Hall Trust, a Vice Chairman of the British Museum and a Trustee of The Turquoise Mountain Trust Foundation.
Tusa said: “This position is wonderfully complimentary to my involvement with the University of the Arts, and it will allow me to work even more closely with the next generation of arts leaders, many of whom I know personally.”
