Beggars Music chairman, Andy Heath, has been awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list, for services to music.
Andy previously received an MBE for services to music publishing in 2009.
“Wow – I’m really thrilled, surprised and honoured. I have always taken great satisfaction and pride in the British music industry and have tried to serve its best interests,” he said. “It’s an industry that has provided the world with a great cultural contribution and has punched well above its weight commercially. I honestly feel that this award is as much for the creators and business people in British music just as much as it is for me.”
