We are excited and proud to announce the appointment of Silicon Valley entrepreneur Javan Mershad as our new CEO.
Javan is a musician and the founder and former CEO of the leading digital music distribution platform Octiive. Javan founded Octiive (formerly known as MondoTunes) in 2014, based on his own recognition as a musician that indie artists deserved the same opportunities and distribution tools major labels offered. Octiive delivered that, becoming the digital distributor with the biggest network of stores, including crucial penetration in China, and a constantly evolving suite of tools allowing artists to collaborate, promote, and achieve. UK media giant Anakando bought a large stake in Octiive in 2016. He remains a member of the executive board of Octiive, and a consultant and advisor to several Silicon Valley startups.
