Head of Artist & Fan Development at Spotify
Jordan Gremli graduated from Cornell University in 2008 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Atmospheric Science, but spent most of his time as an undergraduate at WVBR-FM, the school’s independent, student-run commercial radio station. He is currently Head of Artist & Fan Development at Spotify. In this role, he manages a team responsible for building programs and tools that help artists build their audiences by connecting them with the right fans throughout every step of the artist development process. This includes developing and running Fans First, Spotify’s fan reward program.
