Jon Morgan has announced he will be stepping down as Director of FST in December this year following his appointment as Director of the Theatres Trust.
Jon Morgan said: “Having led FST for the last 8 years, I would like to thank everyone I have worked with both at FST and across the cultural sector. It has been a real privilege to support Scotland’s dance, opera and theatre sector and whilst I am excited by the opportunity at Theatres Trust, I will very much miss all those people across the sector in Scotland who have been such a pleasure to work alongside and from whom I have learned so much.”
Alex McGowan, Chair of FST, said: “Whilst I’m sure colleagues and peers will be very sorry to see Jon go, not just from FST but Scotland too, I’m also sure he does so with the very best wishes of the FST Board, staff team and wider membership. On their behalf I offer Jon our huge thanks for his leadership of FST and support for the wider cultural sector in Scotland. He’s going to be a hard act to follow.”
