Board and Governors
Our Board is chaired by Nigel Hugill and is made up of around 15 people, chosen for their skills and experience and including our Artistic Director, Gregory Doran, and our Executive Director, Catherine Mallyon. They work closely with the RSC senior management team in leading and steering the company.
Board members, apart from Gregory and Catherine, are drawn from a wider group of Governors. Governors act as advocates on our behalf and come from a wide range of backgrounds. They meet at least once a year at the Company's AGM, chaired by the President.
The Prince of Wales is our President and Her Majesty the Queen is our Patron.
Gregory works closely with a team of Associates - directors, writers, actors and a designer - who help to determine our artistic policy and programming.
Steering Committee and Steering Group
Gregory and Catherine are supported by a group of senior managers who make up the Steering Committee and are responsible for developing and implementing our Strategic Plan. A much wider group of department heads also meet regularly as the Steering Group, managing our day to day operations and debating the key issues affecting the life of the company.
Everyone at the RSC plays a part in creating our work and sharing it with our audiences. We employ a huge range of people including directors, writers, actors as well as other creative, technical and administrative staff.
