QMusic is pleased to announce the appointment of Angela Samut as CEO following a national search.
Ms Samut will start with QMusic on April 30, replacing Joel Edmondson who has joined the Queensland Music Festival as Executive Director.
Ms Samut brings a strong background to her new role. Since 2014, she has been the Communications and Marketing Manager for Screen Queensland during a period of strong growth for the organisation.
Ms Samut’s previous roles have included Publicity and Promotions Manager with Paramount Pictures, Publicist with Network 10 and National Publicist for Festival Mushroom Records from 2002-2004.
“We’re delighted that Angela will join QMusic. The final field for the position was very strong and the interview process showcased several strong contenders from several states,” QMusic President Michael Crutcher said.
“Angela will bring to QMusic an exciting background from her work within the music industry to her most recent appointment as a highly-regarded Communications and Marketing Manager at Screen Queensland.
“Angela has an excellent understanding of Queensland’s creative industries and she is clearly passionate about the music industry.
“She will join QMusic in our 25th year at a time when we’re continuing on an unprecedented period of growth. BIGSOUND, the Queensland Music Awards and our Industry Connect program have all grown in recent years.
“I thank the QMusic team which has performed superbly while we’ve been seeking our new CEO. They put together the best Queensland Music Awards we have seen two weeks ago.”
