Spo­tify UK man­ager Chris For­rester ex­its

Campaign UK - - NEWS -

Chris For­rester has left Spo­tify af­ter less than a year in the role of UK coun­try man­ager.

The move comes within months of Marco Ber­tozzi, for­mer chief rev­enue of­fi­cer at Publi­cis Me­dia’s Per­formics, join­ing the mu­sic-stream­ing com­pany. Ber­tozzi be­came vice-pres­i­dent, Europe, and head of sales in Jan­uary.

Spo­tify hired For­rester in May last year and tasked him with lead­ing the UK op­er­a­tion. For­rester re­ported to Jonathan Forster, EMEA vice-pres­i­dent of sales.

For­rester was pre­vi­ously man­ag­ing di­rec­tor at Prime­sight, where he worked for four years.

Spo­tify con­firmed For­rester’s exit but would not dis­close the rea­sons for his de­par­ture, nor whether he would be re­placed. For­rester said the split was “am­i­ca­ble” and de­clined to com­ment fur­ther.

Ber­tozzi said: “We thank Chris for his hard work and wish him the best for the fu­ture.”
