Rachel van Walsum has stepped down as managing director at Maestro Arts, staying on as an artist manager. Jordi Martín Mont, who has been with the company since it started in 2011, is the new MD.
She says: ‘As a team, we’ve always prided ourselves in being flexible and able to anticipate the appropriate moment to make positive change. Jordi has an excellent strategic mind and fabulous energy, and this is the right time for him to lead Maestro Arts onwards.’
He says: ‘There is a lot of work to be done to make sure that people who aren’t yet interested in classical music can discover something valuable in it, and everyone in the business shares that duty.’
