London Music Masters (LMM) has announced Roz De Vile as the UK charity’s Chief Executive effective from 1 September, as Rob Adediran steps down after seven years in the role to pursue a new career in diversity and inclusion leadership.
As Chief Executive, De Vile will be responsible for delivering the organisation’s strategy ‘Excellence for Everyone’ and leading the LMM team to adapt and adjust its work in response to the effects of Covid-19.
Simon Freakley, LMM Chair of Trustees, said:
‘Roz has been an exceptional leader within LMM for the past five years and has grown our work in schools, teacher training, commissioning and curriculum development with incredible skill, bringing innovation to every aspect of her work. Her previous roles at the groundbreaking Gallions Primary School in East London, and in artist management at Intermusica have brought a depth of insight to her work, which is widely respected across the industry. She is one of the most creative and committed leaders working in music education today with a compelling vision for LMM’s role in shaping music education in the UK.
‘I look forward to working with her in the coming years as, in these most challenging of times, we face up to the critical task of ensuring creativity and culture remain in the hands of children and young people from all backgrounds.’
Roz De Vile said:
‘It is an honour to take on the mantle of Chief Executive at London Music Masters. I am fortunate to inherit a thriving and ambitious organisation thanks to Rob [Adediran]’s strong and inspirational leadership, and accept with excitement and optimism the responsibility of steering our charity through challenging and uncertain times to ensure continued growth, creativity and – above all – commitment to the young people and communities with whom we work.’
