[UPDATED] SoundCloud’s CFO leaves company for TuneIn position
SoundCloud’s chief financial officer has departed from the music streaming platform.
The service’s first-ever CFO Holly Lim, has migrated to TuneIn — a radio streaming platform that will host Lim as its own CFO, as announced by TuneIn this week. Lim leaves behind an extensive history at SoundCloud, joining the streaming entity five-months after it unveiled SoundCloud Go, its first paid subscription service. Prior to her involvement with SoundCloud, Lim worked as the director of business operations for Google’s collaborative Cloud/Google for Work Enterprise organization. Lim additionally served as the CFO for Google’s Advanced Technologies & Projects (ATAP) team.
Lim is currently receiving a warm TuneIn welcome. “We’re thrilled to add Holly to the executive team,” TuneIn’s CEO, John Donham, has noted of TuneIn’s recruitment of Lim. “Holly’s experience in consumer subscription services, entertainment, and original content uniquely qualify her to join our team and help drive out business forward.” Rounding out Lim’s “experience” is a host of previous executive roles at a variety of companies including Viacom’s Comedy Central, Time Warner’s New Line Cinema, Citibank, and Stetson.
Returning Donham’s compliment, Lim states “TuneIn has built an impressive team with incredibly high ambitions. I am joining the company at an exciting time — TuneIn has built a unique position in the audio space through its bold content acquisitions, core growth in listeners & subscribers, and the global reach of its offering.”
In a statement provided to DA by SoundCloud, the streaming service wrote that, “Holly Lim left SoundCloud in August for personal reasons, not for another role. She was later tapped to join TuneIn as their CFO. The SoundCloud finance team is now reporting to the COO, Michael Weissman.”
