Joint CEO and creative director of ATG Howard Panter, speaking in a press statement, said of the announcement: "I’m thrilled to be working with Tali again and we’ve already been discussing some terrific new projects that we’ll be announcing later in the year.
"Tali is a wonderfully gifted producer with a string of hit shows under her belt on both sides of the Atlantic, and her fresh approach will make for an exciting partnership with ATG."
Pelman is currently a board member of High Tide Festival Theatre and Theatre 503. A graduate of Columbia University, she received her MBA from the London Business School.
