On-demand concert streaming service Staccs has announced that it has hired former HBO exec Anders Tullgren as its new CEO ahead of its launch later this year.

“It is an exciting time to join the company in what is going to be an important year for launch”, says Tullgren. “Staccs has developed an innovative product which will add genuine value to the music industry ecosystem. The goal of Staccs is to create a premium, high-quality streaming service for the music fan, providing them with a place to relive their favourite, legendary moments but also, to engage and discover music. I’m looking forward to working with the team”.

Prior to joining Staccs, Tullgren was VP Marketing at HBO Nordics, CEO of film and music distribution company Bonver Entertainment, and was also involved in the launch of Scandinavian video-on-demand service film2home. He previously held a number of roles at Universal Pictures too.

COO and co-founder Jonas Sellberg adds: “We welcome Anders to our growing team. Given his proven track record in helping to launch HBO in the Nordics and assisting the team to drive the company to become the second biggest streaming service in the region – Anders brings with him a wealth of experience and expertise that will benefit Staccs. With Anders, we are hoping to combine the best of both music and video-on-demand know-how which will be strategically important in establishing our brand positioning in the market. We are laying the foundations down for us to become the global home for concerts on demand”.

Three years in development, Staccs will offer a catalogue of video and audio live music content when it launches in the Nordics later this year. An announcement on the company’s UK launch is expected in due course.
