NEW Beacon Chief Chosen

GREENOCK'S Beacon Arts Centre has appointed a new chief executive.

Sean Paul O’Hare leaves his position as director of the Séamus Ennis Arts Centre, a multi-disciplinary arts centre in Naul, County Dublin in January to take up his position early in February.

He has a strong background in arts and community work in Ireland and Scotland and has been involved in the programming of venues and festivals in rural and urban settings. 

Gordon Armour, chair of the Beacon's finance committee, said: “The Board of Directors are absolutely thrilled that Sean will be joining the Beacon at the start of February. His appointment was unanimous and staff who met him on the day were equal in their praise of him.” 

He added: “Sean will bring to the role a strong commitment to the Inverclyde community and the wealth of talent that we have on our own doorstep.”

Sean Paul O’Hare said: "It is a great privilege to be joining such a creative and dynamic team. I have visited the centre several times and I have been so impressed with the stunning building and highly professional staff. Throughout my career, I have always focused on securing inclusive community support in order to develop successful arts programmes and it is obvious there are working community partnerships that are making a real impact on the ground in the local area.” 

He added: “The Beacon Arts Centre is a fantastic arts and community resource for Greenock, Inverclyde and at a national level and I look forward to playing my part in building on the continued success of this fantastic project.”
