I very much look forward to the first meeting and to share my broad knowledge and experience in the sector with other members of the member panel and the leadership of the scheme.”

Sean Hooker, head of Redress at the PRS, said: “We’re approaching our second decade of redress and have industry leading expertise as a result.

“We recognise the expertise of our members too and that’s why we want them to help us with their feedback, guidance, advise and support. The member panel gives them that opportunity as well as enabling them to engage with other panel members to share knowledge and raise standards."

Tim Frome, managing director of HF Resolution, the HFIS entity that owns the PRS, added: “Our new member panel is a key part of our strategy for improving our offering to ensure we are not acting in isolation from the sector we represent. 

“We want to know more about how redress works for our members – and how we can make it better still in the future.”
