Royal Opera House brings in Palace FD

Sally O'Neill

Sally O’Neill

Sally O’Neill, the current finance director of the
Historic Royal Palaces, is
to take over the role in February 2009.

O’Neill, a judge in this year’s Accountancy Age Awards, will take on
an organisation with a budget of more than £90m. The Historic Royal Palaces –
comprising the Tower of London, Hampton Court, Banqueting House, Kensington
Palace and Kew Palace – turns over approximately £50m.

The move marks a return to O’Neill’s theatrical roots after a previous role
at the National Theatre. She has also worked for Channel 4, Granada, and the
shopping channel QVC.

‘I never had a [career] gameplan. It has all been serendipity,’ she told
Accountancy Age in an interview published last year.
