Pandora ANZ managing director Jane Huxley will depart from the company to pursue other opportunities.

Huxley has spent five years at Pandora and was the company's inaugural MD.

Pandora CEO Tim Westergreen said that he wants to thank Huxley for her dedication to the company over the last few years.

“[Huxley] has firmly established our brand in the ANZ market, built a world class team and pioneered our first subsidiaries outside of the United States, we wish her well,” Westergreen says.

Huxley says: "It's been an amazing ride, during my time we have grown a listener base of over five million registered users, successfully implement the commercial model in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland, and established many significant market partnerships.”

Taly Yaniv, director of revenue operations for ANZ, will step in as the interim head of ANZ.

It's not clear where Huxley will go next. 

Huxley is a high profile figure in Australian media and marketing having previously led Fairfax Metro's digital arm and spent 15 years at Microsoft.

She was the founder of Pandora in Australia in 2012 and has lead its growth and evolution, including the launch of advertising on the platform and premium subscription service.

The business was embroiled in a legal stoush in New Zealnad with the former MD of the NZ business making claims about corporate bullying within the organisation.

New Zealand trade title StopPress reported that Reece filed a personal grievance case against Pandora. It coincided with the exit of former Pandora Australia marketing director Nicole McInnes as well as news that the New Zealand office was accused of corporate bullying by Pandora AU/NZ senior leadership.
