Spotify Australia MD Jane Huxley promoted to global role, relocating to London

Spotify Australia’s managing director, Jane Huxley, has been promoted to managing director for EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).

The new role will involve relocating to London in the coming weeks, where Huxley will report into Spotify’s global head of markets, Cecilia Qvist.

Huxley joined Spotify from rival streaming service Pandora in August 2017, shortly after the service closed down its Australian operations in July of the same year.

At the time, Pandora announced it would close its local arm to “remain laser-focused on the expansion” of its core business in the US.

Before branching out into the world of music streaming, Huxley was previously CEO and publisher, digital, at Fairfax. She has also previously held roles at Vodafone and Microsoft.

Spotify declined to comment on the news.
