Michelle Kadir ~ Sweden
Michelle grew up in Stockholm Sweden with young parents (who came to Sweden as refugees) and who always played music at home – probably the reason why it became her biggest interest. In parallell to her music interest, her big passion for problem solving and technology led her to KTH (The Royal Institute of Technology) where she graduated with a Masters in Computer Science. She managed to combine these two big interests in her first job and after 4 years at Universal Music, Michelle joined Spotify as the first female within the product and tech organisation. She was part of making Spotify grow from a start-up to a large successful company. Currently, Michelle is VP over Digital at Sony Music focusing on the next era of the music industry while enjoying building strong teams and leading them to great results.
