Deezer’s North America CEO departs

Tyler GoldmanTyler 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.
