Hilley, Firth named to ASCAP board

American Society of Composers Authors & Publishers has appointed Donna Hilley and Nicolas Firth to its board of directors, filling two vacancies.

The ASCAP board named Firth, a 30-year music industry veteran and president of BMG Music Publishing worldwide, to the post based on his extensive background in music publishing.

Hilley is president/CEO of Sony Tree Music, and has been with the Nashville-based publisher since 1973. She negotiated the publisher’s sale to Sony in 1989.

The vacancies were created by the resignations of Peer Music chief Ralph Peer , who left due to time constraints, and Jobete Music’s Lester Sill, who bowed out for health reasons.

The board is made up of 12 writer and publisher members who are elected every two years.
