Craft Central has appointed a new chief executive, Louisa Pacifico.
She joins the organisation from Clerkenwell Design Week, the UK’s leading independent design festival, where she was head of sales. Pacifico was previously with Upper Street Events supporting New Designers. Craft Central said she was recruited for her understanding of the design world. Her role will centre on building the Craft Central brand, supporting its designer-makers and developing projects, events, partnerships and corporate relationships. Craft Central champions craft and design from its base in St John’s Square, including the twice-yearly Made in Clerkenwell open studio events in the Victorian workshops.
