UKIE CEO Jo Twist has been appointed as deputy chair and non-executive director of the British Screen Advisory Council.
Twist has been a member of BSAC since 2012, and her new position sees her replace previous deputy chair Marc Samuelson. Her role will be to support the indepdent, audiovisual industry-funded body in working with the industry, government and policy makers on identifying emerging business trends.
“I’m delighted to join the BSAC Board of Directors and thank Marc for all his hard work," said Twist.
“BSAC is an invaluable forum for insight, leadership in policy issues that impact all our screen based sectors, and I am pleased there is so much enthusiasm for the games industry at the Council. I look forward to playing my part on the Board.”
BSAC chairman Adam Singer added: “Jo brings a knowledge of how people engage with the screen, talking to it with control pads, keyboards, fingers and voice that so transcends sitting and viewing, and how all that fits into the wider creative and regulatory word. Jo represents one of the crucial areas of the UK creative economy, video games, and will bring a digital perspicacity to BSAC.”
