CPA announces exec committee changes

By | Published on Friday 14 March 2014


The UK’s Concert Promoters Association earlier this week announced some changes to its executive committee, which oversees the organisation that represents the interests of promoters from across the live sector to government, the wider music business, and the public.

Standing down from the committee are CMP’s Chas Cole and Kennedy Street Enterprises’ Danny Betesh, both of whom have campaigned on various live sector issues for the CPA over the years, the latter having been a founder member of the trade group and having sat on the exec committee for a massive 28 years.

Meanwhile new recruits to the committee include Live Nation’s Phil Bowdery, Green Man Festival’s Fiona Stewart and Anton Lockwood of DHP Family.

Confirming his joining the CPA exec committee, Lockwood told CMU: “It is an honour for me to be asked to join the executive committee of the CPA. While promoters are often fierce rivals, it is very important to work together to improve the future of an industry which is a vital and growing part of the UK economy. The CPA is the best way of doing that, and I look forward very much to working with my colleagues from all of the major promotion companies to make a significant contribution”.
