SoundCloud has promoted COO Michael Weissman to the position of President, two years after he joined the company.

“Mike is a proven leader whose strong business acumen and passion for the SoundCloud mission have been critical to helping us grow the world’s largest two-sided ecosystem of audio creators and passionate fans driving what’s next in music and audio”, says Kerry Trainor, CEO of both sides of that two-sided ecosystem we all know and love.

He goes on: “Mike’s leadership will be invaluable as we accelerate into our next phase of growth, and continue to provide the most comprehensive tools for creators to build their careers first on SoundCloud”. And maybe even search for a third side of the ecosystem?

Weissman himself adds: “I’m incredibly excited for what’s in front of us at SoundCloud. Since joining SoundCloud nearly two years ago, we’ve grown the business across all key metrics, established several key partnerships and expanded globally. I look forward to continuing to drive the business and furthering our commitment to help creators and fans connect. Thank you to Kerry and the SoundCloud board for this great opportunity”.
