European podcast and audiobook subscription service Podimo welcomes Malvina Goldfeld to the company as Chief Product Officer, as well as Johann Querné, who has joined as VP of Growth.
As Chief Product Officer for Podimo, Goldfeld will lead Podimo’s product vision, strategy and execution, and will be based out of Barcelona. “In the current culture of communication, a lot of conversation is often so polarized or superficial that people don’t have the ability to go deeper,” says Goldfeld. “Through audio, we’re given a longer attention span to develop an understanding of the world around us. Podimo can play a huge role in the audio format to bring more thoughtful conversation, critical thinking, and a more human angle across different perspectives as we live more and more of our lives online. The product should facilitate discovery of excellent content, foster community, and enable our listeners to experience meaningful moments. We are building a product with global ambitions, but which also resonates deeply with local voices, listeners, and culture, which is one of Podimo’s key strengths.”
Johann Querné has also joined the company as VP of Growth. Querné, a former Twitter, Uber and Lazada/Alibaba executive, specializes in Growth Marketing, Marketing Technology, Analytics, and Product Management, and will be based out of London, leading Podimo’s Growth and eCommerce teams.
“I like to live and breathe the product I’m working on, and Podimo is doing some really exciting things in the audio space. I’m passionate about elevating businesses at this level, working holistically across the org, and leveraging technology to solve users’ needs,” says Querné. “I also love the team, and we share the same vision and values when it comes to creating a best-in-class user experience for our creators and listeners around the world.”
