Cambridge University Musical Society appoints new Executive Director

The Trustees of CUMS are delighted to announce that Chloe Davidson has been appointed Executive Director of the Society.

Chloe takes over from Justin Lee who is stepping down after 2 years in the position. CUMS’ Chairman of Trustees, Stuart Laing, said: ‘Justin has contributed enormously to the development of our supporter base and artistic vision over the last two years, and has helped to return the society to a balanced budget. I am delighted that Chloe is taking over. Chloe has worked for CUMS for 7 years and has become increasingly instrumental in the organisation so the role of Executive Director represents a natural and logical expansion of her duties.’

Chloe Davidson said of her appointment: ‘It is an enormous privilege and responsibility to take on the role of Executive Director of CUMS. I look forward to building on the stability and successes we have achieved over the recent years. Together with the student president, student committee and the Trustees of CUMS, I will endeavour to assist in the continued growth of this wonderfully bold, challenging and engaging society.’

Chloe is already in touch with everyone at CUMS but she would be pleased to meet anyone to discuss ways in which she can help in her new role. Please feel free to contact her at
