Gerallt, who also leads on hospitality and leisure for the firm said:
“WNO is a brilliant organisation, whose strength lies in its community roots and its passion for transforming lives.
“Attending a WNO production at the New Theatre, Cardiff was the inspiration for my lifelong love of opera, so I feel particularly proud to join the Board of this internationally renowned company now, over 40 years later.
“It’s an honour to play a part in an organisation that values the impact of the arts to entertain and inspire audiences.”
Gerallt joins three other new Board members; Harriet Feilding, Paul Hughes and Kenon Man, bringing expertise in a range of areas including finance, law, marketing, equality and diversity and arts management.
Chair of WNO’s Board, Yvette Vaughan Jones said:
“I’m delighted to welcome our four new Board members who will expand the breadth of expertise on our Board in key areas. The knowledge and skills they bring with them will help to shape the future of the Company as we look to bring together more people to experience the power of opera and the extensive community work that we provide throughout Wales and beyond.
“Along with the rest of the Board, I look forward to working closely with them as we move forward.”
