Zoe Jones steps up as CEO of Footprint Music

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Zoe Jones as CEO of Footprint.

This is part of a transition that has been planned from the moment that Zoe joined us in 2016 as Head of Licensing. In 2018 she became a Board Director and, throughout this time, has headed up the Footprint licensing team, a role in which she will continue as CEO.

In the words of Paul Kempton,

“I have known Zoe for nearly 18 years, first as a client, then as a colleague, and I am very happy to have her at the helm of the business as we move forward into the next few years. I have every confidence in her abilities, both as a leader and as an expert in our area. She has a wealth of knowledge about the media industry and music licensing which is so valuable to all our clients. I am sure you will join me in celebrating this upwards move for Zoe!”

Zoe’s appointment also means a change of role for Paul, who has taken the title of ‘Founder’. Paul will be remaining with the business to focus on the bigger picture issues affecting music licensing, and our continuing development to adapt to the new licensing challenges that the digital world brings.  Of course, he’ll also be here to support Zoe and the rest of the team in the work that we do.

Zoe says,

“I am really excited to take on the role of CEO at Footprint. This is a company I have known so well throughout my career and I’m proud to have worked here for the last five years and built up such good relationships with all of our clients. I’m honoured that Paul has now placed his trust in me to take over the reins and look forward to continuing to work with him in his new role as Founder.”
