Direct to fan marketing platform Topspin is losing its VP of sales and marketing Andrew Mains, who is leaving to join mobile app development firm Mobile Roadie.
His new position at Mobile Roadie will be chief operating officer, overseeing business development, managing day-to-day operations, and helping expand the company’s international business. At Topspin, Mains was responsible for evangelizing the platform to artists, labels and managers, and played a key role in the company’s expansion into Europe last year.
Previous to Topspin, Mains was a digital media and entertainment consultant with both Topspin and Mobile Roadie as clients (Topspin and Mobile Roadie are technology partners), so the move won’t be a fully unfamiliar one.
Mains previously was head of new media at Interscope Records.
