Werner in, Madsen out at Nordic Music Export
Ludvig Werner, managing director of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) in Sweden, has been named chairman of Nordic Music Export (Nomex), replacing Gunnar Madsen.
Madsen, general manager of the Danish Rock Council (Rosa), has stepped down after leading Nomex – an umbrella organisation representing of the music export offices of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden – from a year after its founding, in 2010.
Also out at Nomex is former programme director Anna Hildur Hildibrandsdóttir, who is leaving to establish a film production company, Tattarrattat.
It is not known whether Werner (pictured) will continue in his role at IFPI Sweden, but his presence has been scrubbed from the organisation’s website. IQ has contacted Nordic Music Export for clarification.
“We are delighted to welcome Ludvig as the chairman of the network”
“Nomex will continue to be a Nordic hub for collaboration, inspiration and joint efforts when exploring new music export possibilities for our five countries,” comments Werner.
Tuomo Tähtinen, a board member and executive director of Music Finland, adds: “Nomex has played a crucial role in the success of the Nordic music sector. We are delighted to welcome Ludvig as the chairman of the network.
“I would also like to thank both Anna and Gunnar for their huge contributions towards making Nomex the success it is today.”
