Kevin Brown exits Spotify

Kevin Brown, Spotify’s head of artist and label services UK and international, is leaving the streaming company.

Brown, who has been based in London, is one of the most senior executives at Spotify outside of the US. He joined in 2013.

Rob Harvey, global head of artist & label services, said: “I can confirm that Kevin Brown has decided to leave Spotify after having supported Spotify's growth over the last five years. We thank him for his contributions and wish him the very best in his future endeavours."

Brown has worked with artists and rights holders during a period when subscriber numbers at Spotify boomed. He was responsible for developing and maintaining senior relationships with key major and indie label partners across Europe.

Brown is also coming to the end of his two-year tenure as chairman of the Official Charts Company.

Prior to joining Spotify, he ran his own global marketing consultancy, 360 Music Marketing, and was responsible for developing and implementing the global sales and marketing strategy for Coldplay with EMI, where he was previously VP of international for eight years.

As head of international at 3D Artist Management he worked with Coldplay, My Chemical Romance and Scissor Sisters.
