The UK’s Music Managers Forum has appointed Jayne Stynes as its new General Manager, starting today.

Stynes previously worked at Eleven Management. She also recently completed one year of a PhD programme at the University Of Glasgow, exploring the significance of gender-focused initiatives in the UK music and wider creative industries. She will continue work on that research on a part time basis from next year.

Confirming the new hire, MMF CEO Annabella Coldrick said: “This is a fantastic appointment for the MMF. Over recent years we have undergone a period of rapid expansion, both in terms of membership numbers, our associate programme and in the range of activities and initiatives we support. Jayne’s depth of experience will enable us to carry on delivering the maximum possible support to our ever-growing community”.

Stynes herself added: “The MMF is an organisation I have looked to continuously throughout my career to date, from attending training days to drawing on the wealth of information inside their detailed guides. I am excited to be joining such a compelling, dynamic organisation and look forward to working alongside Annabella and the entire MMF team, the board, associates and most especially the members”.
