  • Savage brings 15 years of experience working for music streaming services and building successful music tech businesses
  • Tuned Global’s rapid growth will be enhanced by Savage’s experience with music data analytics and AI
  • Savage joins recently appointed Rick Gleave (SVP EMEA & MENA) in London to strengthen Tuned Global’s UK operations

Tuned Global, the leading B2B streaming technology specialist, has welcomed Hazel Savage, Music Intelligence VP at SoundCloud, as a non-executive board member.

As Tuned Global continues to cement its position as the leading global streaming specialist, Savage's arrival will offer an independent perspective on decisions around strategy, governance and future technology direction. UK-based Savage will primarily focus on supporting growth across EMEA, US and APAC territories.

With 15 years of experience working for streaming services and music tech companies, including as CEO and Co-founder of fast-growing AI company Musiio, Savage brings a wealth of knowledge to Tuned Global. Following roles at Shazam, Pandora, Universal and HMV, she founded Musiio in 2018, which would later be acquired by SoundCloud in 2022 to bolster the music platform's discovery capabilities. Savage's constant thirst to innovate and champion emerging technology has seen her build a stellar reputation in a male-dominated sector – and she continues to speak and educate catalogue owners about the value of artificial intelligence integration at conferences across the globe.

Savage’s appointment to the Tuned Global board builds on a successful relationship, having already partnered together on many client projects such as GMM Grammy’s Plern streaming service, Reactional Music and Rehegoo, and being fans of each other’s work.

The addition of Savage comes after the recent appointment of Rick Gleave in the UK, as SVP Head of Europe & MENA, plus the expansion of the Tuned Global team in Europe.

That they would select its first independent director as a female tech founder shows this business's forward-thinking. I've always had a great working relationship with the Tuned Global team, and I can't wait to bring what I've learnt throughout my career to the business as it enters its expansion phase into new markets and the launch of meaningful services in the metaverse".
