Kingsley takes the reins from Janet Ibbotson, who has acted as Interim Managing Director since November 2005. Janet will continue at the AOP until the end of September, helping Kingsley settle into his new role, introducing him to sponsors, members and key figures within the industry and ensuring the cross-over is smooth.

Kingsley comes to the AOP from the City with extensive experience at a variety of management levels over the last 25 years. With expertise in banking, finance and technology, Kingsley brings new inspiration and considerable practical experience to the AOP, including business management, project management and change management. Having worked at some of the UK’s top level Investment Banks such as UBS, Credit Suisse and Salomon Brothers, more recently Kingsley has been running his own business consultancy, with a client base made up of Private Banks and smaller Private Wealth Management companies.

Having worked in the City, Kingsley is not yet familiar with the photographic industry allowing him an initial period of objectivity, to identify the right requirements to build on the AOP’s strengths and to find the best solutions to enable the AOP to grow.

Kingsley will create and implement a new strategic plan that will enable the AOP to meet the many challenges it now faces. He will lead a skilled and enthusiastic team to cope and adapt to the constant changes found in today’s dynamic digital age and will explore and realise methods of providing better services to its members.

New Project Manager, Awards
Chloe Howell has also joined the AOP as the new Project Manager, Awards. Chloe comes from an arts background with over six years experience and an MA in Museum and Gallery Management. Having managed sections of the Zanzibar International Film Festival and more recently, working as a Project Manager for a museum exhibition design company on their PR, events and marketing, Chloe is a valuable addition to the AOP team.

Chloe hopes to raise the profile of all Awards at the AOP, particularly the Photographer’s Awards, through detailed evaluation and meticulous planning to ensure the highest standards are met and all member’s specialisms are represented.
