Pandora’s local MD Jane Huxley just quit

Jane Huxley is departing Pandora to “pursue other opportunities” the company has announced this morning.

As MD, Huxley was responsible for leading the online radio and music streaming business in the ANZ region.

Pandora’s founder and CEO Tim Westergren says: “We thank Jane for her dedicated service over the last five years. She has firmly established our brand in the ANZ market, built a world-class team, and pioneered our first subsidiaries outside of the United States. We wish her well.”

Huxley added: “It’s been an amazing ride at Pandora, and I’m so proud of all we have achieved. During my time we have grown a listener base of over 5 million registered users, successfully implemented the commercial model in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland, and established many significant market partnerships.

“With the business on these solid foundations, I’m looking forward to my next adventure.”

Taly Yaniv, Director of Revenue Operations for ANZ and a four-year Pandora veteran, will step into the Interim Head of ANZ role.
