Spotify hire Marco Bertozzi in chart-topping Victorious Partnership

Marco Bertozzi heads to Spotify as vice-president, Europe, and head of sales in the region. Formerly global chief revenue officer at Publicis Groupe’s Performics division, Marco joins in January with responsibility for direct sales, programmatic and international business.

Marco joined Publicis in February 2010 as managing director for EMEA at VivaKi Nerve Center and rose to president for global clients at VivaKi in 2015. He also had a previous stint at Publicis from 1996 to 2008, when he began as a TV buyer at ZenithOptimedia and worked his way up to head of digital in 2007.

Brian Benedik, Spotify’s global head of ad sales, said Bertozzi would bring “a fresh perspective” because he has “a great wealth of expertise and insights gained over many years in the agency world”.

Bertozzi said he was excited “to join a company that is working at the intersection of data, tech and incredible content” and described Spotify as “a leader in its space”.

We wish Marco, Brian and the whole of the Spotify team all the very best for this new Victorious Partnership.
