Spotify has confirmed the departure of Gerrit Meier, the former Clear Channel Radio exec who joined the company’s US office a year ago as GM of Distribution & Partnerships. According to All Things D, he is leaving to lead on a new start-up project in Europe.

According to Billboard, Meier’s departure follows the recent exiting of Teymour Farman-Farmaian, the streaming service’s Chief Monetisation Officer, who also left to start up his own business. Though, as previously reported, the digital music firm has new recruits too, having recently taken on former PRS economist Will Page.
