LONDON, UK (CelebrityAccess) – The PRS Foundation is excited to announce that Nitin Sawhney will become PRS Foundation’s first Patron. Having served as PRS Foundation Chair for four years, The Ivor Novello Lifetime Achievement Award-winning music creator will be moving from his current role to take up this new outward-facing position to champion the charity’s work supporting talent development across the UK.
Sawhney, who has spent over two decades as a widely critically acclaimed world-class composer, multi-instrumentalist, producer, DJ, and cultural pioneer, joined the PRS Foundation Board as Chair in early 2020.
Sawhney said, “It has been my honor to serve as Chair of the PRS Foundation for the last four years. Further to that, I am now delighted to accept my new role as Patron of the Foundation. The Foundation works tirelessly in supporting talent development, management, and promotion while applying inclusivity, diversity, and equity throughout its decision-making processes. I thank CEO Joe Frankland and the Board of Trustees for their dedication and hard work.”
Joe Frankland, CEO of PRS Foundation, said, “I would like to thank Nitin for all his important work as Chair of the Board over the last 4 years. Working alongside such an inspiring, impressive, and active music creator has been an honor. His leadership of the Board during incredibly tough years for the music creator community played a vital role in ensuring our support for exciting, diverse talent was available when it was needed most.
I look forward to working with Nitin in this new capacity. I am pleased he can continue to champion the work of the charity and the importance of funding for the music creators and organizations we support.”
