NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) – Spotify’s Global Head of Advertising, Brian Benedik, is exiting the company.
Benedik joined the streaming giant as the VP of North American sales in 2013 and was promoted to Global Head of Advertising in 2015.
He is the second senior US-based executive to exit Spotify in the recent weeks, following the departure of Global Head of Publishing, Adam Parness on June 3. Benedik’s forthcoming exit also follows the recent resignation of Spotify UK’s Head of Music Culture & Editorial, Austin Daboh.
Prior to Spotify, Benedik served as president of Katz 360, the digital unit of Katz Media.
At this point, it is unclear why Benedik has decided to leave the streaming service, or where he is going to next, however, he is expected to step down in September after six years with the company.
