SoundCloud announce departure of chief content officer

SoundCloud has revealed that its chief content officer, Stephen Bryan, is set to depart the company at the end of the month.

Bryan joined SoundCloud in 2014 and played a key role in the launch of both SoundCloud Go+ and the service’s new mid-priced subscription offering, SoundCloud Go.”

Set to leave on June 30, Bryan becomes the fourth major executive to leave the company this year, following COO Marc Strigel, finance director Markus Harder and general counsel Neil Miller. 

SoundCloud said in a statement that those who report in to Bryan directly will assume his core responsibilities, and will in turn report directly to SoundCloud’s executive leadership team. There are no immediate plans to replace him.

Alex Ljung, SoundCloud co-founder and CEO , said: “Stephen’s ability to negotiate favorable deals for SoundCloud with key industry players was instrumental in getting us to where we are today, and we wish him the best. Under Stephen’s leadership, our world-class content, strategy, and creator products teams established pivotal industry partnerships that prepared us for our next phase of growth.”

He continued: “We have a clear path forward, and are well-positioned to expand on what differentiates SoundCloud: providing a unique platform and music discovery experience that our creators and listeners are passionate about. This continued evolution would not be possible without the immense talent across our organization. We are pleased to have such a deep bench of talent at SoundCloud to help us continue to drive our mission to give people the power to share and connect through music.”

Bryan commented: “I am grateful to have been a part of such an amazing team and am proud of what we accomplished together. I’m confident our industry partners are in great hands and I look forward to following SoundCloud’s continued success. I’ll be sharing more regarding my future plans soon.”
