Pearce’s achievements at Wales Millennium Centre are many, and his work on a number of strategic developments there has resulted in the Centre receiving national awards for customer service, including the Queen’s Award for Enterprise and the UK Theatre Most Welcoming Theatre award in 2008 and 2014 (the only UK theatre to have won the award twice). In addition, he brought the food and beverage operation in house, and it has been recognised by both the Michelin and Good Food Guides. He has developed a successful fundraising programme and has overseen continual improvements in operational delivery and efficiency that have led to Centre’s sustainable business model.
“Tessitura’s global success is due to its unique culture of innovation, service, and community focused specifically on the arts and culture sector,” said Pearce. “I am honoured to join the existing strong team to continue the Network’s presence in Europe, and to help Tessitura members improve their business through Tessitura software and thought leadership.”
