Music and audio platform SoundCloud has appointed two sales executives, based in Sydney, to build and support its brand and ad sales partnerships in Australia and New Zealand.
Leading the team as commercial director Australia and New Zealand is former Pandora executive Shaun Alexander. Reporting to SoundCloud’s vice president of international, Sonia Flynn, Alexander will be responsible for driving and delivering a strong sales strategy alongside inviting new business from brands and ad agencies.
Joining Alexander as senior account manager, Brand Partnerships, is Marta Bonzanini. In this role, Bonzanini will be responsible for supporting the development of the sales strategy and building relationships with brand partners. She joins SoundCloud from Facebook, where she held roles within their client solutions teams in Australia and Europe.
SoundCloud’s new sales appointments follow the rollout of its consumer subscription service and introduction of ads in Australia and New Zealand in September 2016.
