Tyler Goldman has departed Deezer. He was the streaming company’s North America CEO for three years, and is leaving to serve as the CEO for PAX Labs, a maker of e-cigarettes. Deezer has not issued any formal comment yet about the exit or who will step in to oversee operations in the region.
It’s a particularly notable change in personnel considering Deezer just made its Premium streaming tier openly available in the U.S. in July. The long-awaited move was preceded by a few years of focused, niche launches stateside. The company worked with Sonos and Bose to hit the high-end home audio market, and also acquired Muve Music, part of a wireless bundle offered by the AT&T-owned Cricket.
