Freud Museum London appoints a new Chair of the Board of Trustees
Sue Prevezer QC has been appointed as Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Freud Museum London. Currently practising as an arbitrator and mediator at Brick Court Chambers, Sue has had a distinguished career in commercial and corporate litigation at the Bar and as a solicitor. From 2008 to 2020, Susan was the co-managing partner of the London office of the US litigation law firm, Quinn Emanuel LLP, and since 2018, Sue is a non-executive director of S4 Capital plc and Bloc Ventures. Sue also sits on the Board of the Hampstead Theatre.
A regular visitor to the Freud Museum over the years, Sue says: “My interest in the Museum began as an undergraduate in the late 1970s when I spent a considerable amount of time learning about Freud and psychoanalysis. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be involved in the Museum’s development, and look forward to working with the Trustees and Team to ensure that it continues to thrive”.
Museum Director Carol Seigel adds: “We are delighted to have Sue as Chair of the Board of Trustees. The Freud Museum has experienced one of the most challenging periods in its history, and we are fortunate to have someone of Sue’s experience to provide leadership and strategic direction to the Board and Staff of the Museum.”
Sue takes over the Chair in November this year, when Alan Newman steps down. Alan has served on the Board of Trustees since 2012, initially as a Trustee and then as Chair since 2018. Alan is Chief Financial and Operating Officer of Ebiquity plc, a media and marketing consultancy and Chair of the Audit Committee of Future plc. He was previously Chief Financial Officer of YouGov plc and a Partner in the consulting practices of EY and KPMG.
Carol says: “Alan has been instrumental in the successful development of the Museum over the last few years. We are immensely grateful to Alan for his wise counsel and financial acumen, for steering us through the toughest of times, and for his incredible generosity as a Patron of the Museum. The entire Board and Team join me in thanking Alan for his kindness and we hope that he will continue his close involvement with the Museum in the future.”
