An Announcement From The Royal New Zealand Ballet

We are sad to announce that we have this week accepted the resignation of Lester McGrath from his role as Executive Director.

Lester has made the decision as part of a personal and career reassessment.

The Board is immensely grateful for his tireless and effective work and inspirational leadership over the past four years.

Board Chair Kerry Prendergast will step in as Acting Executive Director from Tuesday 1 November, with Lester available to help the transition.

The Board will start recruiting an Interim Executive Director.
