Changes ahead at Boss Casting

After eight years at the helm of our outstanding casting team, Cath Ashworth has decided to step down and retire from her role as head of the division.

Since 2009, Cath has led Boss Casting through some incredible achievements and she has some exciting plans for her retirement.

Cath says: ‘I have had an amazing eight years working at Boss Casting. Every day has been different, I have 'Shamelessly' laughed …and cried. Thank you Boss clients for your challenging requests, support and friendship and to the Boss background artists for doing the real hard work. I leave you all in good hands and hope you will venture to Ireland for a visit to my new home!’

Taking Cath’s place is the brilliant Kirstie Jones.  Kirstie has an impressive career history including roles as Assistant Director at both the Royal Court and Royal National Theatres in London and as a LAMDA trained Acting Tutor and Director. She formed Cherry Pie Performance and worked most recently at ALRA North for 3 and a half years.  Kirstie was a part of the team at Boss Casting until 2008 and we are glad to welcome her back as Head of Casting.

‘I am absolutely thrilled to be returning to Boss and to deliver my bold and ambitious vision to the casting division.  Cath has done an amazing job here and I’m so happy to continue her great work. Joining at such a pivotal time is really exciting!’ says Kirstie.

This is a monumental period for the company.  Following a move in November, the inspiring new Boss HQ on Turner Street suits the varied requirements of the agency perfectly and the team have adapted well to their new home. Overcoming challenges is nothing new for the team at Boss. Having transformed this formerly derelict Grade II Listed building from a run down warehouse in Manchester’s cutting-edge Northern Quarter into an impressive studio space housing agency services, Boss look forward to sharing their passion for business with their many friends, colleagues, clients and collaborators.

With four studio spaces available and either wet or dry hire options, the whole business and casting division in particular continues to thrive.

Managing Director and Boss founder Debra Burns says: ‘Manchester’s ground breaking industrial heritage is well documented and I am very proud of our city, its people and our work ethic.  Having the opportunity to develop our own little piece of Manchester has been a terrific journey and we have breathed life and soul back into 33 Turner Street. Having a low carbon home for Boss in the centre of town is terrific and we hope our clients will enjoy the space as much as we do.’
