Swedish publishing rights collecting society STIM has announced Alfons Karabuda as its new acting CEO. He takes over from former acting CEO Helena Woodcock who is returning to her position as STIM’s General Counsel. She took up the interim post in February, following the departure of former CEO Kenth Muldin.

Karabuda has been Chairman of the Swedish Society of Songwriters, Composers And Authors (SKAP) since 2007, and well as sitting on STIM’s board of directors. He will step down from both roles while he holds the temporary CEO role.

Announcing his new position, Karbuda said: “In my new role of acting CEO, I look forward to keep promoting the interests of rightsholders. During a time of intense business development, STIM is in need of Helena Woodcock’s judicial competence as General Counsel. This is why the change has been made”.
