Mather & Co, a leading design consultancy, which specialises in museum, leisure, retail and entertainment experiences, has appointed Sarah Clarke as its managing director.
The North West-based design firm has appointed Sarah Clarke to oversee its studio, and take a strategic view across all live and upcoming projects. She has previously worked with the business as project director for five years, and will now head up the firm, as it sets its sights on further international museum and leisure projects.
Sarah has over 15 years’ experience working in the museums, attractions and exhibitions industry, and rejoins Mather & Co following more than two years as a freelance exhibition consultant, where she specialised in interpretation and content master-planning, and attraction project management.
Having started her career on the Imperial War Museum’s Churchill Museum project team in 2002, she has developed the content for a number of high-profile institutions and exhibitions. Sarah has also held the post of exhibitions manager at the Natural History Museum, and head of exhibitions at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, before joining Mather & Co in 2011 as project director.
Sarah Clarke, managing director of Mather & Co, said: “We have some incredible projects and plans in the pipeline, so it is a fantastic time to rejoin the company and see them come into fruition. It’s great to be able to lead the team as we secure even more pioneering design work in the UK and beyond.
“It’s a really exciting time for the business, and my previous experience in the industry, coupled with an in-depth understanding of Mather & Co, means I can hit the ground running as we finalise the latest wave of truly unique exhibition and design projects.”
Chris Mather, chief executive of Mather & Co, said: “Bringing Sarah back on board, as we enter one of the busiest and most exciting stages of our business, was a no-brainer. She has a wealth of fantastic industry experience and a great understanding of how we work to meet and surpass our client objectives and expectations, so I have no doubt that she will be able to help us take the business to the next stage.”
