Troy Carter's Q&A makes key hires from Spotify and Facebook

Music service and technology company Q&A has raided Spotify and Facebook for a host of new appointments.

Phillip Eubanks joins from the streaming service as chief operating officer, while head of design Marc Hemeon was previously at the social media platform.

“We are fortunate to welcome innovative forces like Phillip and Marc to the Q&A team,” said Q&A co-founder Troy Carter (pictured). “Both bring an impressive track record working with some of the world’s leading technology companies. Their incredible talent, leadership and strategic vision will continue to accelerate the growth of Q&A.”

Before joining, Eubanks was Spotify's global head of strategy and operations for their creator services division.

“I’m incredibly excited to join Q&A and help bring its vision to life at such a crucial point in the evolution of the music industry,” he said. “Building on the opportunities technology has unlocked for creators, Q&A will provide a new ecosystem for creativity and cultural engagement for many more artist and fans.”

Hemeon worked for Facebook AI to design and conceptualise emerging products and technologies and previously founded Design Inc.

"I'm ecstatic to be joining the Q&A team to help reimagine and build the next generation music company, blending the best of the music world with the best of the tech world," he declared.

Formerly Spotify’s global head of creator services and manager of Lady Gaga, Carter launched Q&A earlier this year.
