Peermusic’s Nigel Elderton has been reappointed Chair of the UK’s song rights collecting society PRS For Music, for his second three-year term.

“It’s a true honour to be reappointed as PRS Chair and I look forward to continuing to serve the organisation on behalf of all PRS’s songwriter, composer and publisher members”, says he. “I am extremely proud to be given the opportunity to continue working closely with Andrea and my two Deputy Chairmen, Simon Darlow and Simon Platz, in leading the vital work PRS does in protecting and preserving the value of our members’ music, both here in the UK and around the world”.

The Andrea he mentions there is, of course, Andrea C Martin, chief exec of PRS For Music, who adds: “Nigel has done an exceptional job providing his expert knowledge and guidance as Chair over the past three years and I congratulate him on his reappointment. With over 45 years’ experience in the music industry, Nigel’s expertise will prove invaluable over the coming years and I look forward to working with him closely as we improve our offering to our members”.

Elderton has been UK MD of independent music publisher Peermusic since 1992 and is also the company’s European President.
