A native of Munich, Sabine is a translator for English and French. After eight years in the international royalties department at German copyright society GEMA, she moved to the UK and into PRS’ international department in 2000.
Intrigued by so-called ‘neighbouring rights’ (NR), she became MD of PAMRA, the UK artists’ society, four years before it merged with PPL.
After a 2-year-stint at Nielsen Music (Director of International Marketing for monitoring services and chart data), she moved to Zurich in 2008 and became CEO of Swiss NR society SWISSPERFORM.
Following a family-related move back to the UK in 2011, she was instrumental in setting up Kobalt Neighbouring Rights and continued as its MD for several years.
She eventually launched her own consultancy and translation business. Later this year she will graduate from Henley Business School where she will receive a distinction for her executive MBA (music and creative industries).
