DYBALL DEPARTING MPA GROUP
7/25/18

After five years in the job, Jane Dyball will step down as CEO of the U.K.’s Music Publishers Association Group next year. The British publishing exec previously spent 20 years at Warner/Chappell Music.

During her tenure at MPA Group, Dyball has brought three companies under one roof—Music Publishers Association, Mechanical Copyright Protection Society and Printed Music Licensing. She has steered MCPS in its first few years as a standalone business that has paid down more than £16m debt, revamped the MPA service to its members, and developed new licensing schemes at PMLL.

During the remaining months of her tenure, Dyball will see through the review of MCPS’s membership agreement and Strategic Licensing review.

“It’s always hard to know when to leave because there is always more to do, and these companies have a really great future,” Dyball said. “However, I have either completed or set in motion everything on the ‘to do’ list that I wrote on my first day and it seemed the right time to move on.”

MPA Chair Jackie Alway said, “Jane has been a force for good at the MPA for the last four years, driving innovation and positive change. The MPA Group of companies has been brought together and rendered streamlined and efficient.

“On her watch, the MPA has gained student members, a young members group, extended training and education events, policy updates for members and fantastic summer and Christmas parties.”
