Pandora Names Former Microsoft Exec As CEO

McAndrews was CEO of digital marketing company aQuantive until 2007, when Microsoft bought the company for $6 billion. He then went on to serve as a senior vice president at Microsoft until 2008, but in 2012 Microsoft had to write off most of the money used to purchase aQuantive because it "did not accelerate growth to the degree anticipated."
