Italy's PMI, the indie representative body whose members broke away from FIMI in 2005, has re-appointed its executive committee for the next three years.

PMI's members confirmed Nar International GM Mario Limongelli, who led the 2005 exodus, as its president, while Caterina Caselli, VP of the Sugar group, was appointed honorary president. Claudio Ferrante, GM of Carosello Records, and Paolo Franchini, CEO of Edel Italy, were re-confirmed as PMI's vice-presidents, during a gathering at the Jolly Hotel in Milan on Monday (June 30).

Ferrante and Franchini will continue to sit on PMI's executive committee, along with Massimo Benini (Irma Records), Gianni Dell'Orso (GDM Music), Mauro Farina (The Saifam Group), Diego Leoni (Media Songs), Rosario Maffucci (Maffucci Music), Federico Montesanto (Pirames International), Mario Ragni (MBO), Stefano Senardi (NuN Flower), Filippo Sugar (Sugar Music) and Toni Verona (Ala Bianca).

In a statement, Limongelli says: "I'd like to thank my colleagues for their renewed trust. I will continue to dedicate my professional skills and passion to the asociation and to the problems of the indie labels. We will know how to meet the challenges that new technology represents for all our members, but we will be particularly attentive to the needs of smaller companies."
