Abigail Morris, CEO
The Jewish Museum London
Abigail Morris joined the Jewish Museum as Chief Executive in 2012. She introduced a highly successful programme of temporary exhibitions which has substantially increased visitor footfall, vastly improved media coverage and led to a much heightened profile of the Museum. These have included ones on Amy Winehouse, men’s fashion, Judith Kerr, football and blood. Abigail has a background in theatre and was Artistic Director and CEO of the Soho Theatre from 1992 to 2005. Under her direction she was responsible for building Soho Theatre in Dean Street and for growing the organisation from a turnover of £200k to £2 million. She has directed many award winning productions in London, New York and national tours.
