The troubling string of departures from Jay Z’s companies, including his Tidal music streaming service is getting longer with the recent exit of two more executives, according to a report.
Zena Burns, a project leader at Tidal dealing with label and artist relations, left the company last week after just two months on the job, according to hitsdailydouble.com, which cited sources.
And RocNation’s Chief Marketing Officer Jeff Geisler, who reportedly worked with Tidal artists such as Rihanna, has left the company — heading to Saatchi & Saatchi in a similar role, according to the site.
In addition, a third executive, Jennifer Justice, the head of strategic marketing and business development at the rap mogul’s Roc Nation, has left Jay Z’s employ, the site reported.
No announcement from Tidal or Roc Nation was made on any of the moves — although Timothy Patrick Riley appears to have taken on the role formerly held by Burns, according to his LinkedIn page.
Riley, until 2014, was the global head of music for Activision/Blizzard.
Burns, who headed up programming partnerships at Clear Channel Media before joining Tidal, left the streaming music company to form Moxie Coalition, a management consultancy in Chicago, according to her LinkedIn page.
Previously, interim CEO Peter Tonstad left Tidal after a short stay — after replacing CEO Andy Chen.
