James Sellar is exiting as general secretary of London-based trade body the Music Managers Forum, with effect from Dec. 11. He will join London-based rights organization Compact Collections in the role as director of operations, performer services.

Sellar joined the MMF in 1999, and became its general secretary in 2002 after incumbent James Fisher retired.

In a statement issued today (Nov. 16), MMF chairman Jazz Summers commented, "James will be sadly missed at the MMF. In the years since becoming chairman, I've found James to be totally dedicated. His professionalism, grasp of the business and his ability to see the funnier side of his job makes him a hard act to follow."

A replacement will be named in due course, according to the MMF.

Compact Collections was established in 1994 as a joint venture with the Producers' Alliance for Cinema and Television, with a remit to manage the collection of revenues within the film and TV markets. Its clients include FremantleMedia Enterprises, Granada International and Capitol Films.
