Pandora Founder Replaces CEO; Is ‘For Sale’ Sign Gone?

Pandora was an early pioneer in online music when Westergren founded the Music Genome Project, a massive song database that would become Pandora, in San Francisco in 2000, moving it to Oakland later that year. He returns to the CEO post he held from May 2002 to July 2004.
The landscape today is far more competitive. Pandora, with about 81 million monthly active listeners, must battle powerhouse music services such as Spotify, Apple, Amazon and Google.

A recent Parks Associates study found that 68 percent of smartphone owners stream music daily, with Amazon Prime Music and Pandora One the two leading services.
