Beckie Hart has been appointed as the new chair of the board of trustees at Hull Truck Theatre as predecessor Alan Dix steps down after nine years in post.

She will see the board work towards the theatre’s aspirations for the next 50 years, from showcasing and developing young writers and performers, reaching communities who do not typically engage with the arts, to exploring capital development opportunities.

Arriving in Hull to study business in 1990, Beckie continued her career in the city, holding several managerial roles in small and medium sized manufacturing companies and joined the CBI in 2014 as regional director for Yorkshire and Humber.
