Libsyn announced today that Rob Greenlee has joined the company as its new vice president of content and partnerships. Greenlee is a podcast industry veteran of two decades. An Academy of Podcasters Hall of Fame inductee, he most recently worked as a VP at Voxnest’s Spreaker. Greenlee is also a veteran RAIN Summit speaker.
In his new role at Libsyn, Greenlee will work alongside Rob Walch, another vice president at the podcast hosting, distribution, and monetization company. They will focus on further developing Libsyn’s relationships with podcast producers and other industry partners.
“There is no one in the podcast industry with more experience and knowledge of this space then Rob Greenlee, who has been podcasting from the very beginning,” Walch said. “For over 14 years, Rob has been a friend and mentor to me and many other influencers in the podcast space. The addition of Rob to Libsyn will help us capitalize on the phenomenal growth underway in the podcasting industry.”
“I am excited to join the amazing Libsyn team, whose technology has helped enable podcasting to become the massive global medium it is today,” Greenlee said. “In many ways, joining the Libsyn team is like coming home for me. We share deep roots in the origins of the podcasting industry and I have long admired Libsyn for building the very first podcast hosting platform. We look forward to continuing to advance the podcasting medium by helping drive larger global audiences and greater monetization opportunities for podcasters over the next few years.”
