Pop supremo to chair British Architectural Trust Board


Rob Dickins will oversee RIBA’s cultural programming and collections

A former music industry executive has been appointed to oversee RIBA’s cultural programming, collections and awards as chair of the British Architectural Trust Board.

Rob Dickins was chairman of Warner Bros Music from 1983-1999 when the label was home to some of the biggest names in pop – including Prince, Madonna and REM. He also reshaped the British Phonographic Industry’s Brit Awards into a major annual TV event in the 1990s.

The BATB role is the latest in a line of influential arts positions for Dickins. He has already been a trustee for the V&A and the National Portrait Gallery, and has chaired the Theatres Trust, the National Museum of Childhood and the BPI.
