“We are in a partnership business, and I am looking forward to working with Lorelle to build important and long-lasting relationships that support NIDA both on the national and the global stage, across the performing arts, business and creative industries,” NIDA CEO, Liz Hughes, said.  

Media and communications consultant, Jamie Campbell, who had been overseeing partnerships and engagement will continue working with NIDA in a senior advisory capacity.  Another appointment strengthening NIDA’s executive team is that of Susan Kibukamusoke, the new director of people and culture. She's tasked with helping NIDA fulfil its commitment to building and maintaining an inclusive, agile, diverse culture across staff and students. 

Kibukamusoke came from the National Indigenous Australians Agency’s HR leadership team and she has worked on inclusion, diversity and cultural change for the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, and for the Sydney Opera House.
