New Job for Australia Council CEO
Monday, 28th August 2006 at 1:08 pm

The chief executive officer of the Australia Council for the Arts, Jennifer Bott is stepping down from her role with the Australian Government’s primary arts funding and advisory body in September.

Announcing the move, Australia Council for the Arts chairman, James Strong paid tribute to her leadership saying Jennifer Bott and her management team and staff have achieved significant new funding for the arts as well as new policy and program priorities such as education and the arts, Indigenous Arts, international activities, artists’ earned income and whole of government strategies.

Strong says the arts catalyst model, which enables the Australia Council to have greater flexibility and impact, gives the organisation a central role in Australia’s future as a creative nation.

He says Bott leaves a great legacy for others to build on.

Jennifer Bott describes her eight years with the Australia Council as an exhilarating and illuminating journey.

Bott was appointed CEO for five years in February 1999, and was reappointed for a further three years in February 2004. Before joining the Australia Council for the Arts she was general manager of Musica Viva Australia for seven years and held senior management positions with Opera Australia, AFS International/Intercultural Programs and the Arts Council of Australia (now Regional Arts Australia).

Bott was also a long term member of the Board of Directors of Opera Australia, vice chair of the International Board of Trustees of AFS International/Intercultural Programs (NYC) and is a trustee of Opera Australia’s Benevolent Fund, a life member of Musica Viva Australia and a member of Chief Executive Women.

Jennifer Bott is moving to a new field and will take up the position of chief executive of the University of New South Wales Foundation on Monday October 9, 2006.
