Mark Anders has become a new Partner at Schubert Music Publishing Ltd in the UK and will lead our activities there together with our UK & International A&R Alan Pell.
In an International role for the company, Mark will represent Schubert Music Publishing Group Publishing on international matters and its activities around the world.
Mark is based in London.

Mark pursued a career as a professional musician at the age of 17, and with a group of fellow Jersey musicians went on to record 5 albums for major labels.
 
He was then offered the position of A&R Manager/Administrator at the newly formed Radar Records (a Warners company), and then joined Albion Music as General Manager. Mark then became a partner in Polar Union Ltd., a management and publishing company.
 
In 1992 he was approached by the independent publisher Bug Music in Los Angeles to open and head a newly formed company in London.
  
In 2006, Mark took on the additional role of President of International for the parent company with offices in Los Angeles, London, Nashville, New York, Atlanta, Amsterdam and Munich, and a network of representatives globally. The company grew to be one of the world’s largest independent publishers representing a variety of clients and writers including Kings Of Leon, Bruno Mars, The National, Jools Holland, Estate of Johnny Cash, Kara Dioguardi etc.
 
Following the sale of Bug Music to BMG Rights Management in late 2011, Mark left Bug in December 2011.
 
In 2001, he was first elected to the Board of the Music Publishers Association (MPA), and is actively involved in many aspects of the organisation including chairing the Pop Publishers Committee. In July 2009, Mark became a director of MCPS, and sits on the PRS/MCPS International, Audit, and Membership Committees as well as the Commercial Advisory Group.
 
In January 2012, he set up a new stand-alone publishing company based in London called “Resolution Music Ltd” and the intention is to build a new “musically strong” company following the philosophies and practices built upon during his 20 years at Bug.
 
In June 2012, he entered into a partnership with Schubert Music Publishing whereby Mark will lead activities for Schubert’s newly formed UK Company as well as international matters on behalf of Schubert Music Publishing Group’s head office.
