Birmingham Royal Ballet has appointed Jan Teo as its new chief executive.
Ms Teo has served as a member of the Birmingham Royal Ballet Board for the past two years and has long experience in corporate management and the arts.
She will take up the position in September and succeed current chief executive Christopher Barron who is leaving next month.
Chairman of its board Michael Clarke said: "The board conducted a thorough international search and, while there was no shortage of qualified candidates, it was nevertheless hugely gratifying to find the answer round our own board table.
"Jan has just the mix of leadership skills and management experience we need, knows the company well and has great experience in the arts sector in Birmingham. We look forward to working successfully with her."
In 2009, Ms Teo joined Deutsche Bank as a director where she headed up the change and infrastructure group in Birmingham.
Having played a leading role in the exponential growth of the business, she became chief operating officer for Deutsche Bank's European service centres in early 2011.
She has also previously held senior roles at Legal and General, Barclays Bank, RAC Motoring Services and Lex Transfleet and is a director of the Birmingham Museums Trust where she chairs the finance and operations committee.
Ms Teo said: "I am delighted to combine my corporate skills with a personal and lifelong passion for the arts and cultural pursuits and am looking forward to working with the immensely talented and dedicated team at Birmingham Royal Ballet.
"Having been a member of the board, I have had the privilege of getting to know the chair and the company well and vice versa.
"It is a double honour to be following Chris Barron and all his achievements in the role of chief executive and to be working toward the future alongside (director) David Bintley."
