Spotify promotes Cassie Gilbert to sales director role

Music streaming service Spotify has promoted group sales director Cassie Gilbert to sales director for Australia and New Zealand.

Gilbert replaces Andrea Ingram who left in July to join Buzzfeed as group partnerships lead.

Gilbert joined Spotify in 2012 

Gilbert moved to Australia from the UK – where she had worked for Imagine Publishing, Dennis Publishing and The Weather Channel in account manager and director positions – in 2012.

She joined Spotify as sales manager and was promoted to senior sales manager in 2014. She took on the group sales director role in January last year and was charged with leading the Dentsu Aegis and Publicis Groupe accounts.

Spotify confirmed the appointment but would not make further comment.

Earlier this year, Spotify launched its self-serve audio ad platform, Spotify Ad Studio.
