"We are thrilled to welcome Sara and Kristen to help drive Pandora's strategic growth. Sara's strong strategic perspective, deep roots in the technology industry and multifaceted corporate development background are a great addition to our team," said Pandora CEO, President and Chairman, Brian McAndrews. "Kristen brings her global perspective and experience as a champion of talented professionals to Pandora's diverse team of musicologists, engineers and sales and marketing groups. She will lead the charge to grow and develop our talented workforce."

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. I'm looking forward to getting started and being part of the next chapter of Pandora's incredible growth story."
