Los Angeles, CA (June 2, 2017)—Adam Taylor, president of APM Music and previous vice chair of the PMA Board of Directors, has been appointed as the new chairman of the Production Music Association (PMA) PMA.
Taylor replaces Randy Thornton of Amphibious Zoo Entertainment, who sat on the Board of Directors for nine years, serving as chairman for five.
“Randy’s wisdom and guidance have been an incredible driving force for the PMA over the past five years. His passion and commitment to upholding the values of the PMA have been instrumental in our successes, and his participation and leadership will be sorely missed,” says Morgan McKnight, executive director of the PMA. “We are excited to see what this next chapter holds for the organization under Adam’s direction.
“I am grateful to have been elected as the chairman of the Production Music Association,” Taylor said. “Production music serves a vital role in television, film, advertising, new media and UGC programming, and it is my honor to help communicate and preserve the value of music for both publishers and composers. The PMA has played an important part in this responsibility for over two decades and I look forward to continuing the direction established by Randy Thornton while collaborating with everyone in this new capacity.”
The PMA has also appointed Joe Saba as its new vice chair. Saba, a co-founder and current board member of the Production Music Association, is the co-founder of Videohelper, one of the leading independent creators and suppliers of production music.
