The Board of Sydney Eisteddfod is delighted to announce the appointment of Ms Annette Brown to the role of General Manager at Sydney Eisteddfod. Annette will take up duties from the 10th of January 2022. She is currently the Orchestra Manager for Willoughby Symphony Orchestra.

Annette replaces Piroozi Desai-Keane OAM, who is the current CEO. Piroozi has decided to retire from her CEO position at the end of this year after 15 years in this role. It will also bring to an end her 40 year involvement with Sydney Eisteddfod.

Piroozi will continue working with Sydney Eisteddfod as a part-time Artistic Advisor.

Piroozi Desai-Keane OAM has left an incredible mark on our organisation in so many ways and will continue to be a passionate supporter of the Festival for years to come. 

Please join us in farewelling Piroozi and welcoming Annette to the Sydney Eisteddfod family.
