Sarah Faulder is to exit as CEO of Britain's Music Publishers Assn. in November after nearly nine years in the post. Faulder will relocate to Paris from London to take up the roles as Chargée de Mission to BIEM, the International Bureau of Mechanical Rights Societies, and as senior consultant with the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers.

Ronald Mooij, secretary general of BIEM, and Eric Baptiste, director general of CISAC, said Faulder's extensive skills and legal experience “will be essential assets for the many digital challenges faced by the collective management societies and the creators as well as the businesses they represent.”

An attorney, Faulder came to the MPA after 16 years' service with Taylor Wessing (then known as Taylor Joynson Garrett), a London law firm where she had specialized in intellectual property--particularly music--and became a partner in 1985.
