The election result was announced at PPL’s ninth Annual Performer Meeting (APM) which took place yesterday (25 November) at Rich Mix, London.
This year’s APM also marked the last meeting for Fran Nevrkla OBE, PPL chairman, who will step down at the end of the year.
Three candidates stood in the performer director election including Crispin Hunt and Mark Kelly (as existing performer directors) and Jon Webster as an additional candidate.
The meeting also saw the presentation of the annual performer report, including key financial highlights from 2014 with the organisation achieving a record £161m of distributable revenue in 2014, a six percent increase on the previous year.
Commenting Crispin Hunt said: ‘It is a privilege to be re-elected as a Performer Director. I will continue to do my utmost to represent the interests of PPL’s performer members.’
Mark Kelly added: ‘Thank you to the performer community for re-electing me to represent your interests at PPL. I look forward to working closely with my fellow performer directors and PPL to achieve the best for performers in the next two years.’
