“I have been a Deezer user for the last four years and love the product,” said Miall-D’Aout. “It’s a great time to join the company. Music streaming is already the most popular way to consume music and this is only going to continue to grow. We have lots of opportunities ahead of us and I look forward to being part of that journey together with the rest of Deezer’s team.”
Prior to Liberty Global, Miall-D’Aout was the CEO at marketing start-up TVbeat. She also spent over 10 years at Modern Times Group in various roles, including as EVP of FreeTV, co-MD of the UK operations and CEO of PayTV in Russia and CEE.
