Having jettisoned two bosses since being acquired by Jay-Z, Tidal’s most prominent executive has been its chief investment officer Vania Schlogel.
She’s handled conference-speaking and media interview duties for the streaming service. No more, though: it turns out Schlogel left the company a few months ago.
“Earlier this summer, I resigned from Tidal. While I am excited about my next venture, which is outside the music industry, I wish Tidal nothing but the best and am proud of the dialogue it has catalysed to date,” she told the New York Times. “I hold the highest degree of respect for each of the artists who have advocated for this dialogue and who display a genuine care for the industry.”
Tidal says her departure is due to “less of a need from a financial investment standpoint”, yet with Schlogel having impressed with her public explanations of Tidal’s strategy, there are legitimate questions about who, now, is steering the company.
