Swedish publishing rights collecting society STIM has announced the appointment to its top job of Karsten Dyhrberg Nielsen, who will join from Nordic copyright management organisation NCB, or Nordisk Copyright Bureau. He will replace acting CEO Alfons Karabuda, who took on the role earlier this month.

Says Dyhrberg Nielsen: “I have been offered the opportunity to lead an organisation which faces crucial challenges, but also is in a unique position to meet them. While I regret having to leave NCB after a great experience of six years, I am excited about the chance to further develop STIM, a well-established and influential copyright management organization. I am grateful for this vote of confidence from the STIM Board of Directors, and look forward to start working in Stockholm”.

STIM Chair Kjell-Åke Hamrénadded: “Karsten is the ideal candidate for this job. With his vast knowledge of the rights’ management business, combined with his widespread international network and long-time leadership experience, he is the right person to continue the establishment of STIM as a modern organization with a central position in today’s digital, cross-border music economy. We look forward to welcoming Karsten to Stockholm”.

Karsten Dyhrberg Nielsen will take up his new role in August. STIM’s previous permanent CEO, Kenth Muldin, stepped down in February.
