French-headquartered music streaming service Deezer has appointed Hans-Holder Albrecht as CEO effective 1 February 2015. Albrecht comes from Millicom, the telecom and media group present in Africa and Latin America, where he was president and CEO. He announced earlier this month that he would leave at the end of the year. Albrecht was previously president and CEO of European media group Modern Times. Deezer, which launched in the US in Sptember, currently has 16 million users in over 180 countries. The company has been without a CEO since Axel Dauchez left to join Publicis France last spring.
