LONDON (CelebrityAccess) – The MPA Group has announced Paul Clements as its new CEO.
Clements, who is currently executive director of membership, international & licensing at PRS for Music, will succeed Jane Dyball, who during her five year tenure as the organization’s CEO revamped MPA services for its members, developed new licensing schemes at PMLL (Printed Music Licensing Limited), and oversaw the independence of IMPEL from the MPA.
Commenting on his appointment, Clements said: “I am both honoured and delighted to have been offered the role of MPA Group CEO and am looking forward to building upon the solid foundations of Jane Dyball and her team’s excellent work over the past five years.”
“We are delighted that Paul is joining us as CEO of our group,” added MPA chair, Jackie Alway. “His ability to engage on issues with intellectual focus, as well as communicate with clarity and passion makes us excited about his future advocacy on behalf of our community. In addition, he brings a keen business brain, which will help expand the reach of our PMLL business.”
Clements comes to the position following 22 years of service with PRS for Music. Under his leadership, the organization’s licensing division and revenue grew consistently year over year.
He will join MPA Group in February 2019.
