Troy Carter, who has served as Spotify's global head of creator services since June 2016, will be leaving the company in early September, Spotify confirmed today (July 30). Following his departure, Carter will remain as an advisor with the world's largest streaming service.
As part of his exit, Nick Holmsten, currently Spotify's head of shows and editorial, which includes its playlists, will take over Carter's role. Holmsten and Carter's teams will be combined under the new structure.
"I came to this company to help bridge the gap between Spotify and the creative community," Carter said in a statement. "Over time, that goal evolved from fixing a challenge to building a global team focused on changing the game for artists around the world, partnering with them to help bring their creative visions to life in new and innovative ways. I’m very proud of what we’ve achieved but with so much accomplished, it was the right time to move out of the day-to-day into an advisory role. The knowledge, relationships and personal experiences will remain with me and I know that this talented team is committed to continuing this important work."
