Susie York SkinnerDirector of Development

Susie York Skinner became Chief Executive of Gabrieli in 2011, following 15 years in artist management, beginning at Intermusica where she first worked with Paul McCreesh. During her time at Gabrieli she has undertaken a strategic organisational review which involved closing the central London office, recruiting a new staff team and refreshing board membership; developed important new relationships with concert promoters, agents and fundraisers; and made significant developments to Gabrieli’s relationships with current and potential private, corporate and trust funders. Following a period of maternity leave, Susie returned to Gabrieli as Director of Development in August 2017.

Outside the office, Susie is now using the skills honed during 15 years in the arts, including negotiation, lateral thinking and a continual quest for creative solutions, in her newest role as negotiator-in-chief with her three year old son and his baby brother.
