The Creative Industries Federation has appointed Rosie Millard as deputy c.e.o. and promoted Caroline Julian to head of policy and public affairs.
Millard is a journalist, broadcaster, commentator and author and the chair of Hull UK City of Culture 2017.
She will work closely four days a week with the c.e.o., John Kampfner, on external relations, stakeholder engagement and communications and “play a key role” in developing the strategic direction of the federation as it enters a new phase of growth.
Millard succeeds Harriet Finney who is joining the BFI as director of external affairs. Harriet joined the federation in July 2015, shortly after the organisation was formed, as policy director before becoming deputy c.e.o in September 2016.
Julian was deputy director at the think tank ResPublica before joining the federation earlier this year as deputy head of policy and public affairs. She will lead the organisation’s policy, research and advocacy.
Millard said: “I am thrilled to be joining John Kampfner and the rest of the team at the Creative Industries Federation which I regard as one of the most important cultural initiatives in the UK.”
Kampfner said: “Rosie will make a fantastic addition to the Creative Industries Federation. Her broad range of talents and experiences from across media and culture will be an invaluable asset as we enter an exciting new phase of growth.”
