Newly appointed CSO Sara Clemens is a seasoned technology, media and telecommunications leader with extensive experience building businesses across a broad range of international markets, including Europe, North America, Latin America, Middle East and Greater Asia Pacific. Ms. Clemens will lead the company's ongoing business strategy, corporate development and international expansion efforts. She will report to the CEO, Brian McAndrews.

Ms. Clemens has held leadership positions in corporate development and strategy at major consumer technology companies including LinkedIn and Microsoft. She established the business development, international expansion and M&A functions for the Xbox division, helping to transform Xbox from a gaming platform into a mass-market entertainment platform. She most recently served as Executive in Residence at Greylock Partners in Menlo Park, CA.

"Pandora created a new industry category and changed the way we all enjoy and discover music," said Ms. Clemens. "Pandora's monetization leadership, deep business relationships and unmatched user base are the best in the business.
