UK-based independent music group Proper, probably best known for its distribution business, has announced a number of new appointments.

First, Aaron Black, formerly Head Of IT for Proper Music Distribution, becomes Technical Director for the Group, while Esther Tewkesbury has been promoted to the role of GM Product & Marketing within Proper Music Distribution.

Second, Tony Engle and Rob Hutchison have both stepped down from the Proper Music Group board, the latter to focus on his role within the firm’s wholesale team. At the same time Joe Cokell, a former CEO of one-time indie Sanctuary Records, joins the company’s board as a Non-Executive Director.

Confirming all this, the Group’s founder and Chairman, Malcolm Mills, told CMU: “2013 will be the 25th anniversary of me starting the company and this dynamic board of directors gives me great confidence for the future. There’s never been an easy time for business, but they will keep us in good shape to withstand the greater pressures and challenges that are in store for everyone”.
