BPI's Lynne McDowell promoted to the newly-created position of Head of Public Relations
Lynne McDowell has been promoted from her position as Senior Communications Manager to the newly created role within the Communications team of Head of Public Relations.
Lynne's appointment recognises the dedication and commitment she has shown in raising awareness of the BPI and the extensive work that it does in promoting the growth of legal music services in the UK. It also reflects the increased scope of her role in recent years since she joined in September 2009, and Lynne will now take the lead on the implementation of the BPI’s public affairs communications strategy - a move that will see her become a more active spokesperson for the organisation and the industry as a whole. The new role will also see her take greater responsibility for CSR including the BPI’s commitment to The Big Music Project as well as the development of the BPI’s online, regional and international profiles.
The new position, which commences with immediate effect, will report in to Director of Communications Gennaro Castaldo, who comments:
"Lynne is passionate about the BPI and the work it does on behalf of its members, and she is a wonderful ambassador for our industry. This well- deserved promotion recognises her abundant qualities and will enable Lynne to make an even more telling contribution to key areas of the BPI's work."
