On the Move tracks hires, promotions, and other notable personnel changes in the audio industry.


Radiotopia nets Julie Shapiro as executive producer: PRX announced that Julie Shapiro will be the new executive producer for its Radiotopia podcast collective. In this role, she will be responsible for improving editorial quality, increasing revenue, and expanding audience engagement. Shapiro was the co-founder of the Third Coast Festival and most recently served as the executive producer of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s Creative Audio Unit.

ASCAP’s two London membership promotions: ASCAP has had several shuffles in the ranks recently. The latest are at its London office, where Simon Greenaway was promoted to senior director on membership for the UK and continental Europe. David Ryan Jordan was also promoted to direct of the same division. “Each of them has a sterling network of contacts and will continue to bolster ASCAP’s UK and Continental European repertory, adding to ASCAP’s competitive edge in the modern music business environment,” said Neil Gaffney, the PRO’s senior VP of international affairs.

Ian Rogers’ stylish new job: Last week, we learned that Ian Rogers, the former CEO of Beats Music and a main architect of Beats 1 radio, had jumped ship from Apple. We now know that he is leaving to become chief digital officer at LVMH, a luxury group that includes brands such as Louis Vuitton and Moët & Chandon. “I decided I’m ready for a new challenge both professionally and personally,” Rogers told The New York Times by email. “I have more to learn and contribute.”
