The BFI Executive Board balances successful, leading figures from the world of film and moving image culture with senior private sector executives who bring considerable managerial and commercial experience.
Educated in Yorkshire, England and Paris, Amanda Nevill set up the first British contemporary art fair in Bath in 1980. She joined The Royal Photographic Society in 1985, was responsible for the public face of the Society, its archives and the Commerical Centre in Bath, becoming CEO in 1990 - the first woman CEO in the Society’s history.

During the next nine years the Museum re-invented itself with a £16 million re-development fulfilling an ambitious vision taking it into the new digital era.
