Kathleen Drumm, our new Chief Exective in the media

Kathleen Drumm has been getting her feet firmly settled under her desk as the HAC’s new chief executive. She comes to us from the Toronto International Film Festival where she had been the Industry Director leading a team of up to 40 staff working with film executives, media and filmmakers from the global industry.


“I am really excited about the role and have been learning much about the project’s history to this stage and it’s great to be back home in New Zealand.

The building is taking shape and revealing itself and as it does so the realisation of this community dream for Whangarei and the wider region gets ever closer.”


You can read more about Kathleen here in a recent piece from the Northern Advocate or listen to her interview with radio New Zealand.
