Tony Elliott (In Memoriam 1947-2020)

Chairman, Time Out Group

In July 2020 we mourned the loss of long-time Human Rights Watch supporter and friend, Tony Elliott CBE. Tony was a visionary publisher and founder of the global media and entertainment company Time Out. Tony was awarded Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in 2017 for services to publishing. He was deeply involved in a number of charitable causes, including Human Rights Watch, where he lent his passion and expertise for nearly two decades, initially as a member of our London Committee and Film Benefit Committee, and ultimately as chair of our London Committee and a member of our Board of Directors. Always thoughtful and creative, Tony challenged the status quo and inspired us to pause and think about the direction of the organization in new and innovative ways. He was a force of nature. We were extremely fortunate to have benefitted from his generosity, spirit, and energy.
