The MetFilm School has announced the appointment of David Howell as CEO.
Howell has almost 20 years’ experience working in higher education, having previously served as commercial director for The Institute of Contemporary Music and currently holds director positions at the Higher Education Statistics Agency and Independent HE.
He has in-depth knowledge of academic standards, quality assurance and student admissions, specialising in international development and operational activities.
“I am really excited about leading MetFilm School at this crucial time in the organisation’s development,” Howell said. “MetFilm, as a whole organisation is absolutely unique – I have never come across a specialist organisation that has so many valuable links with the screen industry – whether that’s Hollywood actors, Oscar-winning directors and BAFTA winning producers or tech giants like Twitter and Microsoft. Our students have a remarkable opportunity to make the best links the industry has to offer, and forge out hugely successful futures for themselves.”
