The former CW network president joins Spotify after seven years leading Condé Nast Entertainment.
Dawn Ostroff, one of the most influential women in media, has joined Spotify as the music streaming company's new chief content officer. Ostroff will lead "all aspects" of the streamer's content partnerships across music, audio and video. Spotify said Ostroff will oversee several key departments, dealing with editorial, video, creator services and content operations.
"I'm excited to welcome Dawn Ostroff to the band!," Spotify CEO Daniel Ek tweeted on Tuesday.
Ostroff's hire boosts Spotify's top executive female ranks; her position is on par with that of Spotify's chief HR officer, Katarina Berg. She replaces Stefan Blom, who exited in January. Other execs to have departed Spotify this year include former Rap Caviar curator Tuma Basa, ex-head of music culture George Ergatoudis and former head of artist and industry partnerships Mark Williamson, among others.
