Named by Fast Company as one of their Most Creative People in 2019, Isabel has led a complete transformation of Abbey Road Studios. During her time at Abbey Road, Isabel has been instrumental in modernising the Studios and bringing in the next generation of studio talent - with the addition of three new studios, the launch of digital production services and Abbey Road’s educational branch, Abbey Road Institute, whose London school is now based at Angel Studios in Islington.
