Music Streaming Service Deezer Finally Recruits New CEO

In April this year, the company announced that Axel Dauchez would be stepping down in September, but it’s taken until now to announce his replacement: Dr. Hans-Holger Albrecht, who will take up the role of Deezer’s CEO (and join the Board) as of February 1st 2015. Albrecht joins Deezer from Millicom, where he was President and CEO of the telecom and media group, which offers digital services to in Africa and Latin America. That seems a good fit given Deezer’s largely rest of the world (ROW) strategy. […] Albrecht previously held the post of President and CEO of Modern Times Group, one of Europe’s larger media groups with TV, Radio, Publishing, Production and New Media assets and 1,500 employees in over 20 countries, according to the company’s official announcement. – Steve O’Hear,TechCrunch
