Deezer hires former Movielink boss to run US operations

Friday 31 January 2014 | 09:48 CET | News
French music streaming service Deezer has hired Tyler Goldman, the former head of now defunct VoD service Movielink, to run its San Francisco office as it prepares to launch in the US, Les Echos reports. But Deezer is still hesitating whether to go it alone or to tie-up with an industrial partner to take on the US market. Earlier this month, speculation arose about a potential tie-up with Samsung, and the paper suggests that Deezer could join forces with Beats Music, which launched its service ten days ago. Deezer's biggest shareholder is Guillaume d'Hauteville, who is vice president of Warner Music owner Len Blavatnik's Access Industries fund. Blavatnik was the biggest investor of Beats Music's USD 60 million capital increase. Non-committal, Hauteville told the newspaper: "In an emerging market such as streaming there will have to be consolidations and places are being taken."
