Tony Wadsworth To Step Down As BPI Chairman

Bookmark and Share

The BPI announces that Tony Wadsworth CBE has decided to step down as Chairman of the BPI and BRIT Awards Limited by the end of this year.

Tony Wadsworth CBE, Chairman of the BPI and BRIT Awards Limited, comments:
"After almost seven years in the role, I have decided to make 2014 my final year as Chairman of BPI and BRIT Awards Ltd. It has been a real privilege to be so involved in industry issues over this period of radical change and transformation and to sit around the Council table with colleagues who have such an amazing wealth of knowledge, experience and passion for our business. It has also been hugely rewarding working with Geoff Taylor and the BPI and BRITs teams - and seeing the difference their hard work makes in so many areas week in, week out.
"In recent years since leaving EMI, in addition to my BPI activities, I have enjoyed getting involved in several new ventures, commercial and non-commercial, but all music related. By relinquishing my duties at the BPI, I hope to make more time available to focus on these and selectively add to the portfolio.

"In the coming months I will work with Geoff and the Council to develop and implement a succession plan, and expect I shall stand down sometime in the second half of the year. I intend to continue as a BRIT Trustee and BRIT School governor."

Tony will continue in the role for the time being and work with the Council on appointing a successor, and an announcement regarding his departure date and succession will be made in due course.

Geoff Taylor, BPI and BRIT Awards Limited Chief Executive, comments:
"It has been a great privilege and pleasure to work with Tony over the last seven years. His encouragement, support and advice have been fantastic as we have developed a forward-looking agenda for the BPI and sought to help our independent and major members in practical ways. Tony's wise counsel and experience have helped us to navigate radical changes in the industry and to steer the business towards a future which feels genuinely brighter and full of possibilities.

"I know his fellow Council members and the whole BPI team feel indebted to Tony for his contribution - both as Chairman and as a member of the Council going back to 1998. While we are very sad that he will be leaving, we fully understand and respect his decision, and wish him every success and happiness in his future endeavours."
