IMPALA Elects Patrick Zelnik As President And Martin Mills As Chairman
The independents' organization IMPALA has ratified a new management structure headed up by Patrick Zelnik and Martin Mills.
Patrick Zelnik, president of Naive, has been elected IMPALA president, with Martin Mills, chairman of Beggars Group, taking up the newly created role of chairman. They will take over from Michel Lambot (co-chairman of PIAS Group/Vital) who resigned after a seven-year tenure leading the association ever since it was established in 1999. Michel Lambot will remain on the board of IMPALA.
The board felt that it was necessary to split the ever-increasing workload of leading the association into two. This will allow IMPALA to continue to deliver the independents' agenda and play a key role in shaping the priorities of the music industry in Europe and internationally.
The president and chairman will be assisted by two new vice-presidents, Horst Weidenmüller, CEO of !K7, and Hein Van der Ree, managing director of Epitaph Europe, both active IMPALA board members. All four will deliver their vision to the rest of the board at their next meeting at Popkomm in September.
Their remit will include new collective opportunities and opposing further concentration by the majors. The judgement in IMPALA's appeal against the EC's decision to approve the Sony/BMG merger will come out in Luxembourg on Thursday.
The new structure ratifies elections held at IMPALA's General in June in Oslo, hosted by the Norwegian independents association FONO.
