Theatre designer Vicki Mortimer has joined the board of the National Theatre, as part of a number of new appointments.
She joins alongside Louise Charlton, co-founder of corporate communications firm Brunswick, and Karen Pierce, the permanent representative to the United Nations in New York.
Chair Damon Buffini said: “I am delighted to welcome these three outstanding leaders in their fields to the National Theatre board, each bringing with them a wealth of experience and expertise that will help us continue with our mission of making world-class theatre for everyone, in London, across the UK and internationally.”
He said Mortimer’s work had been seen across all three stages at the National Theatre as well as internationally.
“Her expertise in design and production will be a valuable addition to the NT board,” he added.
Mortimer deigned the NT’s production of Follies, which earned her both a Critics’ Circle and an Olivier award.
They join current board members including Lenny Henry and Alan Rusbridger.
