Spotify chief content officer Stefan Blom has announced his surprise departure from the company, on the eve of its long-anticipated public listing.
Blom has not made any public comment on his departure, while Spotify’s spokesperson told Recode that “We are grateful for Stefan’s many contributions to the company over the years and we wish him the very best. Looking ahead, the content team is well positioned to execute on our strategy.”
That means no direct replacement for now. The former EMI Nordic chairman and president joined Spotify in September 2014 as its chief strategy officer, before stepping up to chief content officer in August 2015 after the departure of Ken Parks.
