Huxley joined the company December 2012, launching Pandora in Australia and New Zealand. Prior to Pandora, Huxley worked with Fairfax Media, with her last role with the publishing company as CEO and publisher, digital.
Taly Yaniv, director of revenue pperations for ANZ, will step into the interim head of ANZ role.
Tim Westergren, Pandora’s founder and CEO says: “We thank Jane for her dedicated service over the last five years. She has firmly established our brand in the ANZ market, built a world class team, and pioneered our first subsidiaries outside of the United States. We wish her well.”
Huxley said: “it’s been an amazing ride at Pandora, and I’m so proud of all we have achieved. During my time we have grown a listener base of over 5 million registered users, successfully implemented the commercial model in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland, and established many significant market partnerships. With the business on these solid foundations, I’m looking forward to my next adventure.”
Earlier this month Pandora appointed Carat as its new media agency after a competitive five way pitch.
