SJACC takes on Lee Charteris
KUWAIT: The Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Cultural Centre (SJACC) has appointed Lee Charteris as its new director. Commonly referred to as the Kuwait opera house, the multi-venue performing arts centre is part of Kuwait’s national cultural district.
With a decade of experience in the region, Mr Charteris is a highly recognisable figure in the Middle East events industry. He is best-known for his time with Flash Entertainment in Abu Dhabi where he served as VP of operations and did much to establish the city as the host for some of the largest shows and events that have come through the region. He has also recently completed his year-long term as the president of ILEA’s Middle East chapter
‘I will be heading up operations of the facilities,’ explained Mr Charteris. ‘I look forward to this new challenge in these truly world-class facilities.’
