After more than five great years with the company, Bangarra’s Executive Director Philippe Magid will be leaving Bangarra in June to take a new global role as the Director of Arts and Culture in the Experiences team at Airbnb.
During his time with Bangarra, Philippe has utterly immersed himself in all aspects of life with the company. From the very beginning, he made it a priority to travel on Country, to make sure that he understood, as best as he could, the unique cultural creation cycle of Bangarra.
Through his strong relationship with Stephen Page – the fostering of which has perhaps been one of his greatest achievements – he was able to lead a major change in our strategic direction. This work, utterly driven by the organisation's values, has shaped Bangarra's communications and has directly led to the remarkable year-on-year revenue growth and the significant audience development, driven by Philippe as Executive Director.
Michael McDaniel said "These achievements, along with delivering important improvements to the organisation's business operations and building an extraordinarily talented team across the company are Philippe's legacy to Bangarra."
