Executive Board

PRS for Music Ltd has a separate board, the Executive Board, which provides direction for its strategy, operations and performance. This Board meets regularly throughout the year and is supported by its own Articles of Association.

The Executive Board consists of directors drawn from the Performing Right Society (PRS) Board, both songwriters and publishers, as well as external directors. The Executive Board comprises:

  • four publisher directors
  • four writer directors
  • four external directors (one of whom is Chairman)
  • an ex officio director - the PRS Board Chairman
  • an executive director (Chief Executive Officer)

Directors are appointed by the PRS Board. Their term of office lasts four years. At the end of each term a director is required to retire and may stand for re-appointment.

The Executive Board is supported by committees that comprise director members from the PRS, Executive and MCPS Boards. They meet regularly throughout the year and operate according to terms of reference and mandates that have been approved by the Executive Board.
