NY grabs UK’s PRS chiefmain
Vanessa Reed, chief executive of the United Kingdom’s Performing Rights Society Foundation for the past 11 years, is to be the next president and CEO of New Music USA.
She says: ‘I believe that music, like every art form, deserves specialist resources and advocates that offer support, build new connections, and create a better future for its creators, practitioners, and audiences. That’s why I’ve loved every minute of my time at PRS Foundation in the UK and why I’m excited to be taking up this post at New Music USA, which plays a crucial role in supporting and connecting America’s many talented and diverse new music communities. I look forward to joining the New Music USA Board and team in New York later this summer.’
