Indie label digital rights agency Merlin yesterday confirmed the results of its board elections. The organisation, which negotiates digital deals for a sizeable slice of the indie label community, has a board of fifteen label representatives, five from North America, five from Europe and five from the rest of the world.

Beggars Group boss Martin Mills was re-appointed as chairman of the organisation, while Because, Phonofile, !K7 and [PIAS] are the other European labels represented on the board. From North America, there are reps from Epitaph, CV America, Secret City Records, Tommy Boy and the Secretly Group, while Hong Kong’s Evolution Music, Australia’s Inertia, Brazil’s Delira Musica, New Zealand’s and South Africa’s Africori all also provide execs to the committee.

Commenting on the latest elections, Merlin CEO Charles Caldas told reporters that he was “delighted that so many of our members took the opportunity to vote in this election, and that Merlin remains of such importance to their digital business. The two years ahead will be critical for the independent label sector, but Merlin is in better shape than ever to help our members realise the opportunities ahead”.
