In his new role, Connaughton will lead Spotify’s U.K. business, including driving its content strategy, artist partnerships, shows and editorial and artist marketing.
The announcement arrives just one week after Spotify also named Dawn Ostroff as its new Chief Content Officer.
Ostroff, who was previously president of entertainment at Conde Nast, will be based at Spotify’s New York office and will lead all aspects of its content partnerships across music, audio and video, specifically Shows & Editorial, Studios & Video, Creator Services, Creator Marketplace, and Content Operations departments.
