Morrison, who joined BAFTA last year, has been appointed to the board for her experience in the creative industries.

She has previously held roles such as controller of documentaries and contemporary factual at the BBC and director of BBC Academy, where she oversaw the corporation’s training across journalism, production and technology.

Sir Edward Lister, chairman of London & Partners, said: "Anne has unrivalled experience leading some of the country’s best known creative organisations. She is a shining example of someone who has risen to the top of her profession through dedication, hard work and vision. The creative sector is a key driver of jobs and growth in the capital so I am absolutely delighted that Anne has agreed to share her knowledge and experience with London & Partners as we continue to promote London’s creative, cultural and knowledge industries."

Anne is the second woman to chair BAFTA, having been involved with the organisation for more than six years, previously as a member of the Television Committee, chairing the Learning and Events Committee and serving on the Board of Trustees.

She is also a trustee of the Charleston Trust, deputy chair of the Watersprite International Student Film Festival and a former chair of the TV Council for Creative Skillset.
