Recording rights collecting society PPL confirmed earlier this week that Mark Kelly had been re-elected to its Performer Board. The election took place at the organisation’s Annual Performer Meeting.

Kelly, of the band Marillion and also now CEO of the Featured Artists Coalition, told CMU: “I am delighted to be re-elected to the PPL Performer Board after a productive and enjoyable two years in office. I see PPL as a very well managed organisation that has made significant progress in recent years. I look forward to the prospect of serving the performer community for another two years and will endeavour to do my upmost to serve and represent all performers to the best of my ability”.

PPL top man Fran Nevrkla added: “Mark’s successful re-election is a testament to his hard work and dedication over the past two years. Mark offers a valuable insight into the performer community and we welcome his further input into ensuring that we continue to maximise the value of the rights entrusted to us by our performer members”.

Among the presentations given at the APM was one from PPL MD Peter Leathem who revealed that the rights body now has 50,000 performer members, a rise of 2500 since the organisation’s AGM in June.
