Epidemic Sound presents new composition of its Board of Directors

Stockholm, Sweden – Epidemic Sound today announces an adjusted composition of its Board of Directors as it continues its growth journey and mission to soundtrack the world. The Board will now consist of seven members, including recently appointed Chairperson Andrew Fisher, Kirsten Wolberg and Adrienne Gormley to the Board of Directors who between them bring significant additional music-tech, software as a service (SaaS) and digital transformation experience.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank Hjalmar, Johan, Johan, and Staffan for their invaluable contributions to the board work and look forward to keeping the dialogue on strategic matters maintained as we continue to grow Epidemic Sound.”

Oscar Höglund, CEO and co-founder of Epidemic Sound, comments: “This is the best of both worlds. We continue to develop and strengthen as a core board, while retaining the expertise of Hjalmar, Johan times two and Staffan as a sounding board when it comes to crucial operational decisions for Epidemic Sound.
