Shazam announced that Patricia Parra has joined the company as its Chief Marketing Officer and will report to the CEO, Rich Riley. As CMO, Parra will drive the brand vision, craft the marketing and communications strategies and lead the overall marketing function for the company.

I look forward to helping Shazam continue to move into new areas and build upon its existing success."
