Sanctuary co-founder leaves group

Smallwood goes, taking Iron Maiden with him, as company draws a line under co-founders' era

Rod Smallwood, who co-founded
Sanctuary group, has left the
business and taken Iron Maiden with
him.

The move brings to an end the involvement in the group of both its original
founders, Smallwood and Andy Taylor.

Taylor left after the FRRP said
that there had been ‘fundamental errors’ in the music group’s accounting
policies.

Smallwood will manage Iron Maiden through a new private company, but
Sanctuary told The Guardian that it would continue to be associated
with the band through the issue of its latest album, A Matter of Life and
Death
.

Smallwood founded Sanctuary with Taylor 30 years ago, after the pair met at
Cambridge University in the 1960s. They took on Iron Maiden in 1979 and yielded
more than 180 platinum and gold awards from some 50 million album sales in that
time.
