The Queen’s Birthday 2012 Honours List has recognised Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA|AMCOS) Chief Executive Brett Cottle as a Member (AM) in the General Division of the Order of Australia, “for service to the performing arts, particularly to songwriters, composers and publishers, through executive roles with copyright protection organisations and to the community.”
Mr Cottle has served as APRA|AMCOS CEO since 1990 and was instrumental in establishing the Code of Conduct for Collecting Societies in 2002. Among other prominent positions in the field of performing arts, Mr Cottle has been a Director of Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy since 2009 and Director of the Australian Music Centre since 2010.
APRA|AMCOS Chairman Mike Perjanik said that the Queen’s Birthday honour was fitting recognition for Mr Cottle.
"I've worked with Brett for over 20 years and have enormous respect for his dedication as CEO of APRA|AMCOS and his personal commitment and contribution to Australian songwriters, composers and publishers,” Mr Perjanik said. “Brett is internationally recognised as an industry professional and leader in his field and it is fitting that he receives this recognition for his outstanding contribution."
