Cross-industry trade body UK Music confirmed on Friday that Jo Dipple has been made the organisation’s Chief Executive on a permanent basis. Dipple has been acting CEO since the association’s founding chief Feargal Sharkey somewhat suddenly stood down back in November.

Dipple told CMU: “I am delighted to take on this role. The British music industry is an extraordinary cultural and economic force and I look forward to working with government and our members to ensure its continued dominance”.

UK Music Chairman Andy Heath added: “UK Music is now established as the representative voice of the UK’s commercial music industry. That voice is now at its most important as government looks to change the copyright framework that underpins our sector. The board is confident that Jo will excel in the months and years ahead”.
