At Rambert Dance Company Sue Wyatt has been appointed Executive Director. The previous job holder, Christopher Nourse, is taking up a similar post at English National Ballet.<P>I'm told by those who have worked with her that Sue has a fine record with her previous companies. Christopher has done a fine job at Rambert and has been unfailingly helpful to many over his years there. We wish them both all the best in their key roles in two of the most important dance companies in the UK. <P>Here is the full press release: <P><B>RAMBERT ANNOUNCES NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR</B><P><BR>As it prepares for its 75th Anniversary Season at Sadler's Wells, Rambert Dance Company announces the appointment of SUE WYATT as EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR. Sue Wyatt takes up her position in July; she replaces Christopher Nourse, who becomes Managing Director of English National Ballet later this month. Sue will work alongside PRUDENCE SKENE (Chairman) and CHRISTOPHER BRUCE (Artistic Director).<P>Sue Wyatt is currently General Manager of The Cholmondeleys and The Featherstonehaughs dance companies, having held that post since 1995.

I look forward very much to working with Prue Skene, Christopher Bruce and Rambert's staff and dancers.'<P>Rambert's Artistic Director, Christopher Bruce, commented 'It is with great pleasure that I welcome Sue to the crucial position of Executive Director with Rambert.

I have every confidence that, with Christopher Bruce, Sue is going to take the Company forward. I would like to wish Christopher Nourse every success in his new role at English National Ballet, and to thank him for his substantial contribution to the Company over the last four years.<P>Rambert Dance Company's 75th Anniversary Season at Sadler's Wells comprises two celebratory mixed programmes presented from 12 to 23 June.<P>
