Andrew Mains appointed COO of Mobile Roadie
We have spent the last year building our team at Mobile Roadie and today we are making another big stride by bringing Andrew Mains on as Chief Operating Officer effective September 19, 2011. As COO, Andrew will oversee business development, grow our global sales team, and manage day-to-day operations. Andrew is a digital music and entertainment industry veteran with extensive experience helping artists, managers and labels deepen engagement with fans. He will be an invaluable addition to furthering Mobile Roadie’s mission to connect brands and customers in an innovative and unique way.
Andrew comes to us from Topspin Media where he served as VP, Sales and Marketing. During his time there he brought new artists and brands to the Topspin platform while educating and guiding managers, record labels and distributors on the best ways to approach direct to consumer marketing and commerce. He also helped in the European expansion of Topspin last year. Topspin has been a leading tech partner of Mobile Roadie for nearly two years, and with Andrew joining our team, we are excited to further this close partnership.
Prior to working at Topspin, Andrew was Head of New Media at Universal Music Group’s Interscope Records where he guided the digital marketing efforts of artists such as Eminem, Gwen Stefani and U2, while participating in innovative partnerships with some of the industry’s biggest brands.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming Andrew to the Mobile Roadie family.
