Copyright Agency board director Kim Williams has been appointed as chairman of the organisation.
Mr Williams is a former CEO of various media organisations, including News Corp Australia, Foxtel, and Fox Studios Australia.
Copyright Agency chief executive Murray St Leger said Mr Williams’ high-level expertise within the arts, media and creative sectors had already made an impact at the Copyright Agency.
“With the myriad challenges to creators’ rights in the current climate, Kim’s appointment as chair is a very positive development for our members,” he said.
Mr Williams will be taking over the role from Sandy Grant, who has been a board member since 2002.
Mr Grant’s contribution to the board was highly commended by Mr Williams.
“He must be congratulated for driving and supporting many landmark initiatives in his time as chair,” he said.
