Cathy is NMC's Executive Director and leads the strategic development of the organisation, working closely with the label’s Creative Director, Eleanor Wilson. The first fourteen years of her career were as a professional musician in Stockholm, working as a vocal coach and repetiteur. Since her return to the UK her roles have included Executive Director of SNPM (Society for the Promotion of New Music), Managing Director of the London Sinfonietta and Director of Music at the British Council. She has served on many boards, including ABO (Association of British Orchestras), ISPA (International Society for the Performing Arts) and as Chair of Streetwise Opera.
In her free time you’ll find her indulging her passions at concerts and the opera, the theatre, at art galleries, reading – in Swedish and English - and walking, both inside and out of London. She has a great love of all things Scandinavian, particularly nature, food and design. She is a fluent Swedish speaker and is quite capable of speaking Swedish to English friends without noticing it.
