Actors’ Equity Australia is thrilled to announce the appointment of Sue McCreadie as its new director, commencing on March 1. Ms McCreadie joins Equity from NSW Trade & Investment where she was responsible for managing the state’s film incentives including, last year, a one-off $20 million Film Fund. Ms McCreadie will provide Equity with strong leadership in a challenging era, ensuring that performers’ rights are maintained and enhanced.
Equity's Federal President, Simon Burke, said the new appointment would ensure that performers continued to be well-represented.
“Sue is well-loved and respected on all sides of the industry. Her track record of excellence and achievement, whether with the state government, the Australian Writers’ Guild, with Screen NSW or with the Film Finance Corporation makes her ideally placed to step into this key role in the Australian entertainment industry.”
