Miranda CurtisBoard Director at Liberty Global plc
Miranda’s executive career was spent in the international digital broadband industry from its inception in the late 1980s. She worked for most of that time with Dr John Malone at Liberty Global, on whose behalf she negotiated and managed joint ventures in both content and distribution across Europe and Asia Pacific, principally in Japan.
Having led the multi-billion dollar sale of Liberty’s Japanese interests in 2010, Miranda was invited to join the board of Liberty Global as a non-executive director. In January 2018 she also joined the board of Liberty Latin America.
Since retirement from her executive role Miranda’s wide-ranging portfolio has covered retail (chairing Waterstones, the major British bookselling group from 2011-2016, and serving as a board director at Marks & Spencer from 2012-2018), the arts (she is Deputy Chair of both the Royal Shakespeare Company and Garsington Opera), and public policy (she serves as a Trustee of the Institute for Government, and in 2017 was appointed Lead Non-Executive Director on the Board of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office).
Miranda’s key role as Chair of the leading African charity Camfed (The Campaign for Female Education) also reflects her profound interest in international development and the empowerment of women.
