The global digital rights agency Merlin hired three new members to its team on Thursday (May 24): Marta de la Hoz as head of reporting, Chaida Kapfunde as head of technology and development, and Quentin Martins as member operations manager. In the past decade, Merlin’s staff has grown from three members to 21, working worldwide in offices across Amsterdam, London, New York, and Tokyo. Merlin currently serves tens of thousands of independent record labels in 53 countries.

"Ten years feels like a significant landmark. However, as new services launch, and as streaming and subscription models gain traction in previously undeveloped markets, it is crucial that Merlin can evolve accordingly and offer our members the highest possible level of service," said chief commercial office and general counsel of Merlin, Charlie Lexton. "These new additions to our team add significantly to our level of expertise, and ensure that Merlin can continue to bring maximum value to our members’ digital business."
