Jonathan joined Spotify as one of the first employees in early 2007, originally tasked with striking partnerships to drive distribution and explore potential revenue streams. Working across the business as it scaled, he has held a variety of roles including European GM and Global Sales Director.
Prior to joining Spotify, Jonathan spent eight years in a series of management positions at NASDAQ listed digital marketing solutions provider ValueClick. His final role there was European Development Director.
Jonathan is fascinated by the ever-changing world of technology, the way this impacts consumer behavior and the response demanded of content companies and brands alike in order to stay relevant.
He lives with his wife and two children in a town called Sigtuna on the outskirts of Stockholm, enjoys both watching and playing sport as well as getting out on the water. He has been mildly panicked since he realised he will never be able to listen to all of the music on Spotify.
