UK song rights collecting society PRS For Music has announced that its Executive Director of Membership & International Karen Buse will step down from the organisation at the end of the year – 28 years after she joined on a six week temp contract.

Following her departure, current Commercial Director Paul Clements will take on her workload in the new role of Executive Director for Membership, International & Licensing. He’s only been at PRS for 21 years, so they shouldn’t have to jig people around again for a while yet.

“I’ve been lucky enough to combine all of the things I love into one role – international relations, commercial focus and a love of music”, says Buse. “I am so proud of what my teams have achieved in the time I have been with them, and I know they will continue to do our members proud in the years to come under Paul’s leadership. I would also like to thank our members for all of their support over the years. It has been an honour to serve you all”.

Clements comments: “I would like to extend my warmest thanks to Karen and congratulate her on her incredible contribution to PRS For Music in all of the years that she has served the business. I am both delighted and honoured to be taking on this new role and look forward to the challenge of building upon Karen’s sterling work”.
