Concert streamer Staccs announces key hires

Music concert video streaming service Staccs has announced a number of key hires, recruiting ‘top industry talent’ from companies including Live Nation and Universal Music.

The Swedish startup has hired industry names including Kristofer Åkesson, Jonas Thulin, Rickard Nilsson, Kristina Tunkrans Lidehorn, Alviva Stolpe and Sofia Stefanovic.

Åkesson joins as head of Staccs originals, and previously served as marketing and communications director at Live Nation Sweden. Jonas Thulin, former Universal Music exec, meanwhile joins Staccs as head of business development and partnership relations. 

Other key appointments include Alviva Stolpe as CFO, who is leaving her role as CFO at medtech company Coala; and Sofia Stefanovic who joins as PR and marketing coordinator.

Anders Tullgren, CEO of Staccs, said: “These are dream recruitments for us. We realised early on that we shared the same vision of what Staccs can be, and how Staccs Originals, with original productions around concerts and new music TV formats, is something long-awaited by all. 

“There are still large elements of the music industry that are not digitised and therefore not monetised in a way that enables rights holders and artists to generate sufficient revenue from recorded video content – our product fulfils this potential. These strategic hires reflect a game-changing moment for Staccs.”
