Tina Hart has joined the UK’s Music Publishers Association (MPA) as Membership & Outreach Manager.
Starting her role on February 29th, and reporting to the MPA’s General Manager, Claire McAuley, Hart will assume direct responsibility for liaising with the organisation’s 270-strong membership – acting as a first point of contact with major and independent publishers from across the UK, and working on all areas of member relations, sponsorship, outreach and education.
Hart joins from Broadcast Music Inc (BMI) where she is Executive, Writer/Publisher Relations, Europe.
She previously Deputy Features Editor at Music Week, as well as contributor to music-related media including SBTV and MSN UK Entertainment.
Following a restructuring process the MPA team has been bolstered by a number of other appointments, including Issy Dacre (Events Manager), Nico Evans (Team Administrator) and Tom Fletcher (Project Co-ordinator) – all of whom joined the organisation in January 2016.
Claire McAuley, MPA General Manager, said:
“Tina will be a great addition to the MPA in this lynchpin role – her uniquely blended skill-set will be an asset to both the team and membership. Our members will benefit from her knowledge of and enthusiasm for the sector and alongside our other new appointments – in the form of Issy, Nico and Tom, all of whom have industry backgrounds – the MPA is looking in strong shape for the year ahead.”Music Business Worldwide
