Executive Shuffles: Bertlesmann, Twitter, Roadrunner, Fueled by Ramen, Spotify…

It’s been an insanely hectic month for human resource departments, with companies across all sectors shuffling their executive decks. The latest changes are coming from Bertelsmann, which has just re-signed CEO Thomas Rabe to an five-year extension. Alongside that move, Bertelsmann has tapped Bernd Hirsch to become Chief Financial Officer (CFO), a role being temporarily filled by Rabe. Effective April 1st, Hirsch will also be named to the Bertelsmann Group Management Committee (GMC).

And more has materialized at a tumultuous Twitter. After hard-flushing a handful of top execs, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has named Leslie Berland as chief marketing officer. More updates undoubtedly ahead as Twitter battles a stalling growth curve and extremely pressing monetization issues.

In label-land, Mike Easterlin has been bumped from general manager to president of Fueled By Ramen and Roadrunner Records.

And, look for some Japanese staffing assignments from Spotify, with job openings and whispers pointing to an imminent launch in the country. Japan is regularly one of the largest global music markets.
