"Laurence brings a wealth of commercial experience and a long track record in ad monetization, partnership strategies and business growth," said Deezer CEO Hans-Holger Albrecht. "I'm excited to welcome her to our senior management team and look forward to working with her to accelerate our growth across the world.'"
