New board members appointed at AIM AGM

By | Published on Thursday 10 July 2014


It was the Annual General Meeting of the Association Of Independent Music yesterday, and in amongst the proceedings four new board members were appointed.

Standing down to make room for the newbies were Ruth Daniels of Fat Northerner Records, Billy Grant of 2Point9, Al Mobbs of Ambiguous Records and Simon Wills of Absolute Marketing & Distribution. Meanwhile new to the board are Nathan ‘Barley’ Phillips of Invictus Music & Media, Tim Dellow of Transgressive Records, Stephen Richards of Lucky Number Music and Paul Sanders of The state51 Conspiracy.

And if you thought all that would result in a quote from AIM CEO Alison Wenham, it turns out your thoughts are more accurate than perhaps we previously believed. Said Wenham: “This has been a pivotal twelve months for AIM, one in which we have had to fight harder than ever to protect the rights of our members in the face of numerous, ongoing challenges. We remain, however, a deeply united and committed organisation with members who are passionate and optimistic about the independent sector”.

She went on: “We have also launched several groundbreaking initiatives in the first half of 2014 such as new easy-to-access financing opportunities for independent music companies and a groundbreaking new licensing scheme with the BBC, which will deliver tangible benefits to our sector. I would like to welcome our four new board members and to express my deep gratitude to those who are retiring this year. Their hard work and support has been hugely appreciated”.
