Information on our board and leadership team.


Our talented team combines some of the original pioneers of the Baltic Creative concept and some newer faces, all of whom bring a unique approach and expertise.

The overall direction of the Baltic Creative CIC is provided by our non-executive voluntary board of directors. They provide the management team with strategic advice on the Company’s direction and oversee the ways that we reinvest all surplus funds back into the sector. The board is currently 10 strong, with an equal gender split of men and women. Led by Chair Erika Rushton, they bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in a range of sectors, including property and regeneration, arts and culture, gaming and digital, marketing and PR, social enterprise and third sector, business development, education and finance.

Working under their guidance is the Management Team, who make it all happen and take care of daily operations. The management team currently employs four full-time staff and are led by MD Mark Lawler, who has been steering the Baltic ship since 2010.
