LONDON (VIP-NEWS) — Paul Pacifico has been named as the new CEO of the UK’s Association of Independent Music (AIM), which represents over 800 UK independent music companies.
The news comes four months after we learned that Alison Wenham is to take up a new, full-time role as CEO of Worldwide Independent Network (WIN) after 17 years at AIM boss.
Pacifico, who will take up his AIM post on November 1, joins from his previous role as CEO of The Featured Artists Coalition (FAC), a position he has held since January 2015.
He was also President of the International Artist Organisation (‘IAO’).
Prior to joining the FAC, Pacifico spent almost 10 years in the City in banking and strategy consultancy before leaving to focus on Specific Music in 2005.
Specific Music is a creative music consultancy which designs and delivers bespoke music for industry clients as well as brands and charities. He also set up The AllStars Collective, which is made up of 40 of the world’s top session musicians.
